Well, I finally finished it.
I had to change the pattern a little bit : the sleeves were 9cm too long (weird, insn’t it ?) and 6 cm too large. First the coat was going down to my ankle, whereas I’m 1m68 tall…
I used Talea coat variation for the pockets.
No big issues on this coat, except sewing the collar with a sewing machine who doesn’t like much thick fabrics.
Now, I have to sew the lining !
NB: Pre Nol gave me a dressmaking model for christmas ! You’re sooooo cool Pre Nol !
