I couldn’t find a coat who was warm (for the swedish winter), good-looking AND colourful…it was better to do it myself!

    The pattern: I modified (quite a lot) the Talea coat pattern! I transformed the collar and the pockets; I sewed together the front parts to make a asymmetric coat.

    Very well done! Great color, it looks very stylish. It looks like the talea double-breasted coat pattern.
