I love my new coat! Purple isn’t a colour that’s really represented in my wardrobe – thankfully that has changed now.
The Pattern was self-drafted (with help), following my own design (I’m not, and don’t want to be, a fashion designer though).
I wanted to have a splash of colour and thought piping was a good idea, but I don’t like it when the seams get really bulky when working with wool. So I did a ‘fake piping’.
Go to my blog to read more about the working process and how I did the fake piping (German with translator).
