Hey guys, I'm back again. Wink I actually finished this coat in December, but haven't had time to take photos of it and post them online until now. It was made from a frankenpattern, and the outer fabric is a 100% wool melton that I looooove.







The lining is a 100% cotton print I got on sale:



I made each of the 50-60 roses by hand. This part took up the largest single chunk of time in doing the coat. Otherwise, it was pretty easy. Just labor intensive with the roses and all. Wink

It's far from perfect, but I like it. Hope you enjoy!

Nope, just cut circles (many, many circles), sewed them to the coat, and then sewed them up in a rosy sort of shape. Smiley
