According to most reviews on Pattern Review this is considered an advanced pattern, but I completed it with wearable results so I think it is more an intermediate!
The name was inspired by the color, collar, and most of all that it seems like a fairy tale that this coat actually got made! I spent a lot of time (not counting from the time I got the pattern… maybe a year ago) on this piece and wrote about the pattern and alterations and posted more photos at my blog.
I used Vogue 2449 pattern and 20 beautiful buttons!

(the color is a pale gray if you can’t tell, I prefer khaki but I already own 2 in 2 shades!)
Cotton Poly Drill for the outer
and cotton for the binding
