I live in Winnipeg, Canada, where it is colder than -25 C for a generous portion of the winter. I never understand the folks in their fashion jackets and no mittens shivering at the bus stop – it is absolutely possible to have a nice coat that is also warm. I wanted to make something that I could wear for most of the winter (except the very coldest days), and this coat certainly did the job! I can’t wear it anymore as it is falling apart at the seams in many places, it’s missing buttons, and looks generally worn – for good reason! The pattern was McCall’s M5513 (Hilary Duff design) and the fabrics are melton wool and fuzzy leopard print. I love how well the red and the leopard go together. I’m not usually a leopard kind of girl, but in this case it was perfect!
