The motivation for making this coat was so I wouldn’t freeze for during this month as I attempt my self-imposed Me-Made-March challenge. So I managed to make the least subtle coat in Catalunya!
I used a vintage pattern I bought on eBay a few years ago. As usual, I couldn’t find the motivation to make a toile to check the fit issues, and jeez does this coat have a couple, particularly round the bust area. But I think I can reduce this with a little work. I think the busy-ness of the print hides the worst of it anyways. Overall, I love my crazy coat!
