Description

When I saw this coat, I immediately fell in love with the shape. As everyone did, I left out the ruffle part. I think this coat is more versatile when worn with different scarves than with the ruffle part.

I intend to make this coat in yellow wool for this coming winter, but I decided to test the pattern first and made this summer version. The test run succeeded, although my seam ripper worked overtime, because at some points I didn’t understand the instructions very well. I struggled a bit while constructing the coat, but I finally understood how it’s made. So feel free to ask anything in the comment section below if you need help while making this coat!

P.s. of course I’m prejudiced, but the coat looks way better in real life (and off the hanger)!

Material Notes

I used a thick denim-like cotton for the shell, and a good quality satin lining. I would recommend people to use a thinner, more flowing fabric for this coat than I did. Although the thickness of this ‘denim’ accentuates the bubbly shape of the coat.

      Thanks! I need to take better pictures of it, but for now these Instagram-pics will do.
