I don't have a good name for this creation yet.

I designed and sewed this coat during my last days of high school. I had been eyeing the tweed fabric in my teacher's stash since the beginning of the year and I finally had the chance to use it.
I drafted the pattern and sewed it myself.
The coat includes a peter pan collar, small pleat on the back, blue lining, three pockets (one is hidden on the inside), blue button holes, and big round black buttons, and gathered sleeves.

It is one of the most difficult, yet best things I've made. Now you guys need to tell me what you think! Ready...Set...Go!

The coat is so Beautiful! I'm dreaming of the day I'll be able to actually make myself a coat. I love that your accessories match the colours in the trench. The white shoes look so great and the yellow of the bag brightens things up. But the best part is the pinkish colour in the coat plays so well with your hair.

The blue lining is very unexpected and refreshing. Cheesy

I love this! And unlike a lot of things on Craftster, I can easily think of a dozen places you'd wear it!

oh my goodness. Its so pretty! It reminds me of those matching two piece suits that they used to wear in the eighties and such, but updated in such a classy way. Its so fantastic, and you look adorable in it. and on a side note, you have awesome cool hair.
