Vogue 8211: Misses’ Coat: Close-fitting, lined, below mid-knee flared coat has sleeve and collar variations, shoulder pads, side pockets and snap closure.
This pattern has been sitting in the stash for years – I pull it out every year but have never found the perfect fabric until now.
The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. I did not use them at each and every turn, but when you need them, they are helpful!
I would highly recommend the pattern – if you have it in your stash you should definitely pull it out!
I love the wool, and although the pink lining was used out of necessity (the only fabric in the stash that was enough yardage) I love the contrast.
More pictures and information may be found over on my blog, Lilacs & Lace.
