The moment I saw this pattern I fell in love with it… I had leftover wool fabric from my dress and it was just about the right amount – even though I had to piece it together a tiny little bit. I added the velvet for some extra weight, warmth and luxury. I love the details (the pockets!) and the fact that it’s fully lined. I didn’t find it difficult, it was a very quick project, but I did give the pockets a trial run first (as I had absolutely no fabric to waste!). I had cool buttons picked out already, but then didn’t feel like cutting into my velvet, so I used three extra large snap bottons instead. Come on gals, I know there are others who have already completed this – I’d love to see other versions :-)
