I planned to make this coat all summer
I used a Built By Wendy pattern but altered it because I read online that it was boxy and shapeless
I added the Esther shawl collar and turned it into a fold over coat by adding a high-wasted belt and antler horn buttons
Im surprised at how well this turned out. I am dyslexic and have trouble following written instructions. I am a visual learner, so this was an accomplishment for me!
