It took me so long my dear readers, but I am still here and as promised the modeling pics of the finished coat are also here now. .-)
I used the same pattern (Burda, 9/2007, Mod. 104) as for the pink coat only I did modified few things like the length, made the coat a more rounded (egg form) and added some details: contrast stitching, leather trimming and snaps covered with fabric.
The material I used is very softy virgin wool, for the lining I opted for violet rayon in satin quality.
What do you think yay or nay?
