San Sebastian, S...
My most ambitious project so far. I joined a 7 week sewing course for this one, where every one brought their own project. It was the first time for a lot of things: lining, sleeves, collar… Unfortunately, I had to drop the pockets for lack of time (but better pockets than any other thing, I thought :-)).
The fabric is a very nice boucle, and the pattern is Burda 8292.
All in all, I am super happy with the results… but I will keep the coat for special ocassions, as I keep unpicking threads from the boucle with every pointy stuff I find on my way.
