It’s done. The Clasica Coat.
I love it! It’s perfect! Exactly the size I want it to be!
I won’t take it off. It’s so snugly. It’s my private cosy cocoon of warmth, all cuddly softness. Big enough to house a roomy pullover and jeans, smart enough to look good with dressier clothes too.
It’s taken me six weeks, but mainly because I’ve taken my time about it. It was definitely worth it.
I sat there last night and looked at the picture in the magazine and looked at my coat lying in my lap and thought “I made that!” It was a moment of utter satisfaction. 🙂
