My first coat. And, to be honest, I am so proud that its almost impossible to talk to me right now :)
I had some trouble with alternation as the coat is based on plus-pattern (11/2013 model 131), and I had some trouble with lining, but on the end, its wearable and it looks pretty fine …
pls. pay attention to the “byVA” on the inside of the coat… ;)

I am already planning my second try.

    I love all your projects! I’m going to Ljubljana in June for a conference and my aim is to have a 4 day wardrobe of self-made clothing for daytime, travel, cocktails, dinner. Should be fun!

      Thank you Sewneenee, personalized lining is a result of a joke when my friend asked me how will he know thats its really my work, and I told him that beside my pretty good, but still not the best work I will add applique on the back ;)
