Description

I have already posted this but with rubbish pictures so I thought I would re-post to do it justice. It was the first coat I made and was pretty pleased with it. Makes me feel like a little elf.

    You did a great job. I love the colour and the shape. Its refreshing in comparison to all of these black winter coats you can see in Germany!

      Thanks, my friend and I decided to go out and mess around.
      Its the Doyle Diary by Arthur Conan Doyle’s Dad. Its his sketchbook from when he was in an asylum. Its really funny and cool.

    Very nice! Did you use a pattern, or make your own?

    Yes you do look like an elfling. This green looks awesome on you. I love coats; comfort clothes. I wear them as often as I can (I live in CA.) It just feels like I’m wearing a hug all the time; no?

      haha… I know what you mean. I’ve made loads of dresses but I never wear them. I just like making them. :-)
      I do feel like I’m being hugged in this one.. its soooo warm.. its sooo cold here today and taking pics of me in dresses – freezing. So pleased to be back in jeans, hat and coat!
