Description

I found the pattern on Burdastyle.com and immediately realized I must sew it for myself! The fabric was very cheap and I am glad that the coat didn’t cost for me very much while the result I think is very handsome and pricy :)
I didn’t make the seam in the middle of the back skirt, instead I used the fold. You can evaluate how does it look better.
Just one care, this coat with one button won’t save me when it comes colder and windy. Also the sleeves are a little bit short and wide for that kind of wether. But for warm september, spring time and rainy summer days it’s perfect!

    Wow, what a gorgeous location for those photos! I love the coat. I too have a coat that I purchased mainly for looks, that doesn’t help me stay warm in the winter at all. There are only a few weeks I can wear it in the year, but it’s lovely and I couldn’t help myself!

    Aaah, this is lovely! I definitely see what you mean on the shortness/width of the sleeves, but honestly I think it gives a nice shape to the coat in whole!

    And I think I’m in love with the folds in the back!! Gorgeous!
