I adore Modcloth and I am always checking this site for inspiration. This is a really amazing little coat with a huge double bow on the shoulder. The original is too long for being considering a bolero, so I made it shorter using fabric left from my Tulip coat. This is a thick wool, really easy to work with. I had a very similar pattern from BURDA Easy Fashion Winter 2008. I changed only the sleeves. Made 2 deep pleats trying to getting closer to the original, adding an elastic band for the puffy effect. 3 covered buttons, and of course 2 huge bows. Love the pleated collar!!!
