i have not been posting anything for quite a while! reason was, that we have been travelling a lot, i have been ill and the last project (this coat) took me a long time to finish: but here we go!
the pattern is from burdastyle: the “adam” coat. i changed it around a bit: the shoulders are smaller now, the coat is 10 cm longer and i took in quite a lot of the wide backside. the material is (and that was, why i have been so afraid of doing this) the most expensive, i ever payed for, cashmere and the lining is a silk changeant from goldish to grey.
i never have been handsewing so much as on this coat, to give it the right look, and even it took me so long and it was quite a “fight” to finish it, i am very happy with the result and hope you all like it as well
the outfit you see me wearing “under” my coat is made by me as well!
outside 100 % cashmer in black
lining silk in gold / grey changeant
