What are you most proud of? The finished coat, which was not my favourite project by a long way, looks great - it's quirky, eye catching... and looks great on! Unimaginable when I started it but it actually works really well.

<3 this so much! Amazing! Is there a pattern?

Thank you. The pattern is my own design and for the moment I won't be publishing it - sorry!

I have found a pattern similar to this coat if you are still interested. It's McCall's #M6800

I will be making a coat similar to this one soon. In the process of purchasing the materials. My pattern is from McCall's #M6800. I will be making two, one for my daughter and myself. Good luck to me!!
