Description

This will be a Reyes Magos present for my brother’s girlfriend, Paula. I hope she likes it as much as I enjoyed making it.

About the pattern, it wasn’t pretty difficult, but it was too A-line for my taste so I took in side seams until I was happy with the result. As others reviewed, the fit of the hood is strange, so after constructed and tried on I took in some ease at center seams. Also added lining for extra warmth.
