My mind is such a melting pot of ideas that it can often be difficult to remember what came first. I know this coat was influenced by the following:
- Seeing short versions of the Talea coat by other Burdastyle members.
- Needing an intermediate jacket for autumn.
My obsession with cheap ikea fleece throws and their ease of sewing.
- Loving smart red coats.
- Wanting an extra large hood.
Oh, and some really cute vintage buttons and a secondhand cotton vest I bought whilst in Canberra.
