I decided to make myself a winter coat rather than pay the extortionate amount for a shop bought one and this is what I came up with. I’ll add better pictures once I can get my boyfriend to take them for me!

Material Notes

Green wool




Garment Type

      Thanks. I found the collar a bit difficult but I think that was because the instructions are a bit vague and rubbish – or maybe I am… but once you get what you need to to its easy. I dont know if this is a faux par but its a Simplicity pattern 2812.
      Let me know if you make one and post a picture. I’ll post better pictures over the weekend.
