I LOVE my Larissa.
I made this coat to wear in Gastown, which is a bit bad-ass, and I wanted to feel warm and tough. It’s made of plaid wool that’s brushed on one side (hello cozy pockets!) and woven on the other, lined with boring blue nylon.
I wasn’t too pleased with how the short body/long sleeves on the pattern as written would look on little me, so I lengthened the body 1" and shortened the sleeves 2", and also adjusted the sleeve fit at the cap.
This pattern is lovely, but truly, the instructions are totally lacking when it comes to inserting the lining. Unless you’re an expert, make sure you have a reference book around for it.
And I broke no fewer than SIX needles on it!
Blue, maroon, green plaid wool, nylon lining, and lots of needles.
