This must be the most beautiful piece of clothing I ever made. I’m so happy with it. It’s everything I wanted it to be.
I wanted a white winter coat since last winter. I found the perfect pattern in burdastyle from september 2011. the ferfect fabric and matching gloves for the short sleeves.
I made the pattern 5cm shorter. It needed to be shorter than my previous coat.
I had a bit of trouble with the split in the back but it came out alright.

Material Notes

100% wool

    Love it! The style is beautiful in its simplicity. I think choosing that solid, light color fabric really accentuates the coats style, and details. Great job.
