Ready for the colder days, I finished the coat for my friend. From many wool rests, some old curtains and Jeans I created this colorful coat which got a warm liner. The pattern comes from the Simplicity magazine fall/winter 2012.

      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….

      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!
