After more than 25 hours of sewing I am happy to show you the finished product: pink coat made from wool embellished with mink cuffs.Of course the pattern (Burda, 9/2007, Mod. 104) didn’t fit as usual but I wasn’t surprised. I know already I have to add an hour or two or more to change the pattern according to my needs. Then I discovered the old mink cuffs and was naively thinking to make them smaller, sewn onto the coat is piece of cake. A big mistake! To work with fur is really a job for furrier. So I made a phone call, told my furrier what I need and within two days I could pick up the coat again.
Now it’s up to you to tell me what do you think (pink)?:-)
