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!
