It’s my birthday this week & when I saw this fabric a while back I decided that it would make the perfect birthday present to myself.
I made this coat using a Vintage Vogue Pattern (V1137). The pattern was really simple & quite easy to follow. It did take me a really long time to lay out all the pattern pieces as I wanted to be sure the pattern would match up nicely.
