Coat Elisabeth Final

I made some photos myself at the end just to finalize this one. I will put the pattern for download in few days and link it to this post.





I must say I wear it a lot and I love it. It is very comfortable and chic.
Here links to all the posts on doing this:

the elastic at the back
the triangular buttonholes
the sewing order
the fusing of the parts

So done it is...

Funny backstage fact: This fabric was meant to become Matthieus first self sewn coat. He was eager to do that and bought like 4 meters of the wool fabric. At some point this fabric in the back of his closet became a major dread to his self confidence and time schedule. He solved it by giving the fabric to me and feeling free again. I still have like 2 meter of it.

Update: I made a technical drawing using this template. Was fun. The collar looks a bit like a plant pot... Actually Matthieu said I look like a light bulb when I close the collar. I know, he can be so charming...

Hey Oona maybe you follow the wonderful tutorials I made ;)
No, but seriously it is really easy to make. The pattern is pretty basic and you should just go for it if you want to try something more difficult. There lies the fun!
But I am not sure you will need a jacket like this in your sunny land...
