First, thank you all for the good comments about the floral skirt and the jacket! So lovely to read!
I wanted a classic knee-lenght coat! In August (I started already think about winter) I Found this wool/cashmere coating fabric! It is classic and so soft and warm! And hard to take a nice photos because it is black! :)
This pattern I chose because it is simple, classic, on a figure but still something interesting.
The lining is 100% silk! I mean I made this coat for more special occasion so I wanted make it special!
I really love this pattern! The seams can really make your body look the best!
And more happy about making this coat I am because a year ago I made a first sewing project – a dress for my girl! I remember all the strugles with this simple a-lane dress! If someone would tell me that after year I will wear my own made coat – come on! But you never know! This past year I have been sewing for every day a tleast 1 hour! A lot of mistakes and doubts about my ability for sewing! But still I wanted it! So I am so glad that I do not need spend so much money abotu my clothes, but still make from the very best fabrics and a perfect fit fot me!
So … I wish anyone who loves sew – happy sewing! It is such a great hobby or even more! :))

    Wow SILK lining! It really is a beautiful luxurious lining. Chanel use to say “Luxury should be felt not seen”.

    I’m really impressed about how well the coat has been constructed, and your dedication in sewing Every day for a year! You must really love it. And it shows in all the details – even your buttons are beautifully matched
