Description

This coat was more or less a feat of necessity. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but it’s November! And cold!

I have wanted to tackle Talea for a while, though. Albeit, this is a heavily modified version, with my own collar, a zipper closure and placket, a basically none of the optional design details in the pattern.

I’m pretty happy with it. And given the recent dip in temperatures, it’s certainly serving its purpose.

    Great coat! I love that collar. You remind me of the actress Ginnifer Goodwin… (I think she´s very pretty :)
