Wow!!! this is really an easy and gorgeous pattern. I got the pattern from Knip mode from August 2009. The original one was designed for Elsa Schiaparelli, Knip magazine had simplified the pattern. I actually stick by the original model making the buttons and the collar exactly as the original picture. I also changed the sleeves shape. Made some pleats at the shoulder line and two pleats to the collar. I also added a pad with 2 big buttons at the backside. I recycled 5 old plastic buttons and covered with black velvet then I put a nice candle pin ornament I found on the market, remove the stick and glued on the top, I think they really change the compleate appereance of the coat becoming really chic and retro. I am really pleased !!
3 ,mts of wool boucle very thing frabic, but heavy, and 2 mts of thick linning for making it weareable for the cold winter too.
