Winter Fairytale

Fontainebleau, F...






I made this fur coat for my daughter last December as my special gift with a personal touch to her for Christmas. The inspiration came from lovely children collections from Chloe and Dior, from the fabric that I was lucky to find the same day, and of course, from my daughter herself.

And the coat was ready just in time for our visit to see “The Nutcracker” in Paris Opera.

The coat is based on the pattern of a coat from BurdaStyle Kids Spring Holiday Collection with some changes. I wanted my coat to have slightly flared silhouette and to have a hem ruffle. For this I shortened the original pattern of the front and back details by 20cm and added 3cm flares to the middle of the front details and 6 cm to the center line of the back detail. The width of the hem riffle is 23cm.

The coat is lined with thick matelass lining except for the sleeves. To avoid extra width and possible clumsiness I used regular lining of the matching color for the sleeves.

For a final decorative touch I added two pompons on large satin ribbons.

My daughter did not take her new coat off in the theater and kept it on the whole time as we enjoyed watching “The Nutcracker”. I think nobody minded that.))

Wishing everyone beautiful winter holidays! Merry Christmas!
