EXIGENCE: (n). In rhetoric, an issue, problem, or situation that causes or prompts someone to write or speak.

(I’m titling all future projects using cool, fitting, rhetorical terms, ladies and gents!)

A beastly winter project, if I may say, not so difficult as it was time-consuming, and you did indeed need exigence. Winter may be almost over, but this double breasted beauty is my masterpiece. Using the Burda 7735 as a base with MANY alterations, including the entire fleece interlining sewn in by hand, I am quite satisfied. P.S: Don’t you love the straight hair?

    It’s beautiful. I love it. The outer color, the inner color, the design, the look, the button holes… Masterpiece indeed.

    Really excellent job, and I envy your bound button holes. Those are hard to do at that small scale!
