I have always found it really cute, seeing little girls wearing stylish little coats with pretty hats and scarves and having that elegant grown-up look. That's where my inspiration for that coat came from.
I bought this wool fabric in dark teal colour on one of my trips to Bulgaria. It is thick and feels very soft, ideal for a coat.
As usual I self drafted the pattern. I decided to go for princess seams and welt pockets.
For the lining I used grey viscose fabric. This project taught me that I should use larger facings and construct a bit larger linings for a more professional look.
Here I was experimenting with adding some interesting details to the coat. In the end I left it without any of them.
