Description

This swing coat is based on the vintage pattern from the issue 10/12 of the German Burda Style magazine.
I added hand-sewn buttonholes, fabric covered buttons and a hood that can be attached with buttons that hide under the collar.

    Wow! Great coat! I like that the hood is removable, I’m always looking for removable hoods when buying a coat. The buttons and buttonholes are lovely too :)
