Description

I made this coat using Burda’s #125 from the October 2013 issue with a gorgeous blue wool I managed to buy in a stocksale for €5/m.
The lining is a surprise, it’s hot pink sheepskin. Hurray for pink and blue!
I omitted the button band and added extra pleats in the back, because it was waaaaay to big. Appearantly they have a lot of ease in the coat patterns… I really should learn to measure my pattern pieces more often!
