I am a fan of the “Lady Grey” coat by Colette Patterns, but as the pattern is rather expensive, I went for a look alike. I found a similar coat in the August issue of “Knip mode” magazine of 2008. The coat is presented as a knock off of a jacket of Nicole Kidman. I deleted the double breasted buttons, replaced them by an invisible button and added a belt.
The jacket lining is a lovely shiny fabric with two colours; green warp, egg plant weft.
The scarf is an “endless scarf”, based on this tutorial:
