This coat is made using the burda 03/2010 coat 101A pattern. However, I wanted it to be more of a cocoon shape instead of flaring out. So I simply took the side seams in smoothly on the bottom, also made the sleeves straight instead of flared. I also eliminated the back seam. The coat is one of the easiest coat pattern to sew as it has so little seams.
I modified the collar a little so it bubbles up. Originally I wanted to make a hoodie, but I only got 2 yards and there was not enough left to make a hoodie. So a bubbly collar will do.
The coating material has rows of snow flakes on it, its so cute! the reason i bought it even though its only 10% wool :)
10%wool, 90% poly
