As you know I live in Florida. I just can't bring myself to make or even buy a coat. We have such sporadic and short winters, I find they just hang in my closet for years until I give them away. So for at least the past 6 years I have not owned an overcoat. I usually just layer, and or wear hoodies and zipper jackets. I do own a Michael Kors leather jacket that I absolutely love.
At first glance of this pattern, I thought, well its on sale, but I doubt if I sew anything from it. Of course I see Burda Young and I think about teenagers. But after this weekends cold snap where we got down into the low 40's, I decided I needed to revisit and try View "A". Its perfect for layering, and just cute enough to wear casually with my boots and leggings.
The pattern was super simple and didn't even have to pay much attention to instructions. Burda and I have a love hate relationship, so I usually just review the instructions then toss them to the side and do my thing. That's exactly what I did here. It came together nicely and I can't wait to style if for you guys, so stay tuned.
