    Awesome coat! I’m loving the purple lining as well! She looks awesome! Wish you’d been my mum when i was her age – best dressed kid at school!

    It is fabulous! My daughter would love one like that too! My mum is making a coat with the same pattern for my daughter now, did you use the shoulderpads like it says on the instruction?

      Thank you loulourosa. I didn’t use shoulder pads. I must have missed that part of the instructions! It would certainly add a bit more structure but I would use really lightweight ones. Unless you want the Joan Collins look!

    Very trendy indeed! I love the purple lining, such a nice contrats. And can’t belive you covered studs too. What a great detail :)
