So it seems that autumn has arrived. It has been getting really cold these days and I fear, that I finished this coat too late! But nevermind, spring is surely returning (…next year…). :)
This is the first coat which I created myself. I used several patterns and combined them and I am quite satisfied with the result. I especially love the collar. I had this collar on my mind for quite some time and drafted it myself by several trials and errors. In the end it turned out just as I had imagined and I am glad about all that effort it took me.
As I could not find matching buttons I decided to make them myself with the left fabric.
So this is my version of a classic, romantic autumn coat.
