      I’m so happy I’ve inspired you! I’m already curious how your version will look! True, a maxi version is probably just as cool! I’ve bought many different wool fabrics and think about making a lighter longer one myself…. There is so much more to sew….

    Wow – this is so amazing and wonderful! You’ve done a great job with creating all this fabric together! I like the coat very, very much! and I’m sure your friend will use it a lot :)

      Hello Ellen
      Thanks a lot. Last year I made one for myself and she liked it so much… now I could use up the rest of the fabric and create one for her… what more do I want!

      I have always thought about making a similar coat to myself because I have one from Desigual, and now when I have seen your sister’s coat, I think I have to give it a try.. :-)

      Thanks, I like the fact that I could use up rests and it still came out so good!
