This is a coat I made last winter from my Akiko Mano book “Jolies tenues pour fillettes coquettes”. It is supposed to be done in a lighter material but I wanted a warm coat for Canadian winter. I added lining and warm interfacing. These three layers were a bit challenging for my skills and my little machine. but we did it, yeah!!
I added the petal sleeves and the piping.
