Cover coat from this year Burdastyle’s January issue
It was not the easiest or the fastest of my creations. In fact, it was like taking a shortcut through a thorny bush , but it is here in the end!

The pattern is quite tricky and will need to be remeasured and adjusted to your individual measurements (especially the back length and width) With all that in mind- a great coat for late spring/early autumn and fun to wear.
This version is not lined and all inside seams are finished with a Hong Kong binding seam. I abolished the front buttons and added four red jumbo snap fasteners instead.
