Mine is a little darker color and I love it!
Lake Blue Polyamide/Merino Wool/Elastine Water Repellent Jacketing With Flannel Back 54WI saw a recent article in Threads magazine where they used Butterick 6292 as a base.
I just love version B with that high collar and the asymmetrical buttons up the front. My original plan was to make view A that is a shorter coat, but when I saw the beautiful shade of blue, I worked hard to squeeze out the longer length!
My only oops moment was when I found out I forgot to cut the back vent piece that is actually like a facing. And, to make matters worse, I had zero fabric left that would work!
I had the scissors in my hand to make this a shorter length but thought, " Hey, others have made some cute little surprises with their coats by using a contrasting piece as a facing that you can see when you walk." So....I found some faux leather from my stash! I think it compliments the buttons I choose.
I love my new coat.
Thanks for reading!
