That's exactly right, Cam! You can decide for yourself which side is the right side! I usually make the judgment based on how the rope looks...on the inside or the outside!
My latest FO, the GROVE mid-calf coat, has the rope on the right side. I love it. But, it was what the designer said to do. So I usually follow their advice. Not always, but usually.
Thanks for posting the photos for us!
