I made this cute coat after purchasing a metre of dark forest green wool for only $7. The problem was that I didn’t want to make a skirt. Luckily I found this McCall’s 5941 pattern, which worked out perfectly. I lined it with a bemberg lining because wool is too itchy for me.
I apologize about the pictures, the coat is not meant to be worn over my grey dress :)
