Jour d'automne

Nordrhein Westfa...






So it seems that autumn has arrived. It has been getting really cold these days and I fear, that I finished this coat too late! But nevermind, spring is surely returning (…next year…). :)
This is the first coat which I created myself. I used several patterns and combined them and I am quite satisfied with the result. I especially love the collar. I had this collar on my mind for quite some time and drafted it myself by several trials and errors. In the end it turned out just as I had imagined and I am glad about all that effort it took me.
As I could not find matching buttons I decided to make them myself with the left fabric.
So this is my version of a classic, romantic autumn coat.

      Thank you!…hihi…my real name is Annette. But my family calls me Nette since childhood. That is why I like that name better. ;)

    Your coat is really cute, it suits you so much, you did an amazing job of combining the patterns. It also looks like a good Autumn staple.
