Re-lining a coat

I have a favorite raincoat I intend to take to London, but it does  
not have a hood, so I bought some very similar fabric and made a  
button-on one.  While I was doing that I kept looking at the hideous  
printed lining I have disliked since the day I bought it and decided  
to re-line it.

So I bought a couple yards of plain black Posh, and yesterday I  
spent way too much time ripping out the lining.  It was not only  
lock-stitched, but serged, and then top-stitched!  Argh!  But it's  
out, and I'll use it as a pattern to make the new lining. I probably  
should have just made an entire new coat.  :-} But I love the fit  
and style of this one, and now I'll enjoy it even more.

I finished it yesterday, and I'm really pleased.  I also replaced  
all the buttons, and added a 'belt-saver' (the little doo-hickey  
which passes through a loop to prevent the belt from escaping). The  
hood is going to be a life-saver, I won't be struggling with an  
umbrella!  Pics soon.

Thanks.  Now to finish hemming a couple of pairs of slacks, and
