Changing a Pajama pattern into a Coat Pattern!!!!

I recently finished this oversized coat for a client. It's made of a heavy twill like fabric and has a felt lining. It also has a button placket and zipper inside. I essentially made a similar coat to one my client owned. He asked me to recreate it for him. He was very pleased with the results. But the kicker is I used a pajama pattern to create it. I've been sewing long enough that I know how to grab a pattern that has the general shape that I want and conform it into another style. This pajama pattern was perfect. Just changed the fabric, created the zipper/button placket, and added pockets where I wanted them. Super easy!!!! Isn't sewing great! It gives you so many wonderful opportunities to be creative & inventive!!!!!
