Millburn, New Je...
After being thoroughly inspired by CTBM, I made this little pea coat for my son. I based the size off of a jacket in his closet, and added the wide lapel, large collar, and faux cuffs to give it some character. The shell is a navy twill, and the lining is a plaid fabric from Ikea.
I put up a full tutorial on how I sized it from a different sweater, and then how I constructed it here
1 yard twill, 1 yard lining, a whole lot of buttons
