Ok, it needs ironing and general cleaning of cathair, but never mind that. My coat is finished!!




The ribbon in the back needs to be longer and maybe a different color (but I didn't have any more) but I'll  fix that later. And the pics are a little shiney while the fabric totally isn't, so please ignore that.

What do you think??

That's beautiful, and it looks very warm!  I like the ribbon lacing especially (and if I were you, I'd stick with black ribbon).

Wow! Lovely! I especially like the back - the black ribbon fits perfectly, and the hoodie looks really comfy and warm. Smiley

Very well done! I agree, the black looks great. What other color were you thinking of? What's the lining like?

It does not due to dwell on dreams and forget to craft.

Beautiful coat. I would stick with the black lacing, because you have wonderful monochromatic black going on. Another color might be too contrasting and the hood lining is black also. Great job!
