What materials did you use? 100% organic cotton


What advice would you give someone starting this project? The reason for this additional photo is that I have altered the original so that I am more comfortable wearing it. I normally wear a large and, of course, purchased the large pattern when asked. After doing a few alterations I am pretty sure the large is the correct size in this pattern for me. The shoulders fit perfectly. I had to remember it is a loose fitting coat. For alterations, I cut four inches off the bottom and after removing the stitching for the back darts, I added four inches to their length and restitched. I think it looks much better now.


Simply beautiful and excellent color choices.
