Description

I wanted a more subtle coat after making the trench coat and I’ve admired this style for a while without selecting fabric for it. The pattern sizes began too large for me so I added a curved shoulder dart after all was said and done. I would have preferred not to dart but I only realised after it was finished. Also added pockets, no coat is complete without them.
*Update Jan 2013: correct Burdastyle pattern reference now available*

Material Notes

two types of wool, lining silk, salvaged bone buttons

    Oh, I love love love this! Looks so great, and what a clever way to make the shoulders fit better. So impressed! Great job!
