I realize Im a little behind on the times in making a wool coat just in time for Spring, ha but I live in Utah so really its pretty much Winter all year round anyways.



This coat was created using the Burda Style coat pattern from The Burda Style Handbook, and then just gray wool fabric from Joann's.



This was my first time making a coat so I'm actually kind of amazed it turned out! ha but hey I'll take it.

Great coat. I like that it shows your tiny waist. I would want to make them with many colors for the fabric and the buttons if I had such a long winter.

Awesome job! I really like the length. Too many coats have a short hem, which just isn't so great in cold weather Sad  did you happen to line it?

Wow thanks so much everyone! Goodness you guys are all too nice. Seriously these comments really meant a lot to me. Mini_m00se yes I did line it! I used light pink polyester, I should have taken a picture but I didn't even think about it!

Super warm surprisingly! I think it's the wool, but ya it has definitely stood up to cold Utah weathers which is saying a lot.
