Finally: a coat. I never made one before and I’m not sure I’ll be making one again since it was a LOT of work. Everytime I picked up my books to study, I actually wanted to work on it. Anyhow, it’s finished now and I’m pretty much pleased with the result. It’s Simplicity 2311 by the way. I might consider lowering the loops for the belt, since the pattern is made for women of about 1.62 – 1.67 meters and I’m 1.80 m tall. I should have known, that’s always a problem… But other than that I think it’s ok! It was a challenge and I pulled it of!
The coat isn’t made of wool (as you might expect), but out of a polyester/viscose blend, which is very soft. The lining is made out of beige polyester, quilted with cotton.
