My biggest so far the project. I bought at a bargain price gray linen, without a specific destination. I decided to make a stylized trench coat. I took the basic pattern of Burda 4/2006, model number 130
Extended the jacket a few inches, I changed my pockets, I added a cape on the back and most importantly, I added a lining. It turned out to hit a 10, because the autumn is perfect.
I added a little gadget: a hole in the pocket and guides for headphones.
