It wasn't set to release until October 29, but sweet Bari sent me an advanced copy!
I made the long sleeved version so it is really wearable throughout the winter. It is fully lined in the same chocolate satin I used for the sleeve ruffles. Rather than using a contrasting fabric for the pockets, I used the same fur. I added in satin piping to the tops of the pockets to give them a little more definition, since they blend right in.
Another minor deviation from the pattern instructions is the large pair of hooks and eyes I used instead of buttons and buttonholes.
Faux fur and satin aren't my favorite to sew with, but I think the coat turned out really well! It is extra snuggly and cozy too!
And best of all, she loves it!
