Long Coat and Top

Added Feb 25, 2015

Nedre Vats, Norway






I liked this coat pattern from the first time I saw it, and now I finally found the right fabric to use.. It’s a medium knitted fabric. Because of the gathering in the waist the fabric couldn’t be too heavy. I have lined it so I can use it outside as well. For the top I’ve used jersey and it’s based on pattern #125 Burda 11/2008. I like colours to brighten up the winter :)

Material Notes

Medium knitted fabric and jersey.

    It’s always fun for me to see your work. The jacket is so cool! The knit is fantastic and I love that you lined it. It’s really a great piece in your wardrobe. I agree, a pop of color in winter is always a boost to the owner and those she meets!

    You made a good choice of striped fabric for this long bohemian style maxi coat. Updated for a modern bohemian look, and red top is nice contrast.
