Colorful Wintercoat

Added Jan 16, 2014

Nedre Vats, Norway






I do like colors – and when I saw this lovely wool I just had to buy some fabric for my winter coat. The black parts is wool boucle and really warm. I found this pattern #109 in Burda 10/2009. I wanted to have a coat which I could use sweater underneath and for daily use. I made a belt for the waist and then it feels more suitably. It has side pockets and pocket in the back as well, but for me it was too much with pocket flaps. I like the hood very much too :) As lining I have use sateen fabric.

Material Notes

Wool fabric, wool boucle and sateen fabric.




Garment Type
Satin, Wool

    I don’t know where to lay my eyes to: your new coat or the wonderful scenery at the background of your photos. Colours are good for the winter-time!

    Ellen wow!! What a fabulous coat and your photos are so lovely. I love your version of this pattern, who dos’nt want to feel warm but stylish at the same time. Breaking the coloured wool up with the black shows the fabric of to the max. I love snow and love getting my photos taken in it. your photos are lovely and show the cost of so well. At the moment its cold and rainy here, we’re due snow and then i’ll be out getting pics taken lol x
