The Office, Main...
Two coats presently worn as one. The short woolen cape goes on top of the green one as long as it is still cold here. I used the cape pattern from the jacket-cum-cape in burda 08/09, just widened the front panels by some inches. I would have let them overlap, but the fabric left didn’t allow for anything more and I think it’s fine after all. Most of my garments obey to circumstances in that way, it’s often quite helpful to make decisions.
For the green number I used some canvas I bought years ago – it was light grey originally but I decided to dye it – ‘Amazon’ if i remember right. Most of the seams are taped in light grey now, I might dye it again to have the same colour everywhere. I added a pleat at the rear of the pattern and changed a few little things here and there on the way, as you do.
