This coat sat on my chair all cut and ready to be sewn for 2 MONTHS! The instructions were so intimidatingly confusing that I just stared at them every now and then trying to make sense!
In the end after going through Burdastyle looking at the photos closely and studying the notes, it finally made sense. In the end I threw them away and followed intuition.
And now I have this lovely coat to show for it; in its lovely warm copper colour. It was supposed to be ready for winter but that will be over in 2 weeks. So here’s to spring!
