Loes Hinse Sweater Coat

I had a lot of fun making this coat--pretty easy, and I love the result. This is made from faux fur snow leopard fabric I bought from Sharon at Causal Elegance. I used the sweater coat pattern with a couple of minor tweaks Loes introduced at the seminar in October. Slightly longer collar and a slightly lower V neckline. I included the in seam pockets but did not topstitch them due to the nature of the fabric I used. It will be a fun garment to wear during the fall and winter months. I did not line or change the pattern other than as already noted. I will try to add a photo of me wearing the coat, but for now it is on my dress form in the messy sewing room.
