I just love my new Sherlock-inspired coat! Not that it actually looks like the original, I just wanted to make a black winter coat, probably with something red on it and in any case it should have a really warm collar to protect me from the bad weather habits of Berlin’s winter – just that we hadn’t such a bad one this year….
But still there was one week or so we actually had snow and freezing cold wind from the east. But you know what? It was exactely the week I finished my coat. Made me jump 😉
The collar which I salvaged from an old jacket is really helpful against icy breezes. If it is not really cold outside you actually sweat under it! So I added a hook which allows me to close it if needed. Otherwise the collar is just a fancy fake fur collar.
But my two fave features on my Sherlock coat are the black and white buttons and the red lining which I added instead of red button holes 😉 ♥
The pattern I used is from a german Burda Moden magazine (2/1970) and it’s actually the same pattern I already used for the short coat I made last year. I just had to add a little length for “Sherlock”.
I love a little Sherlock-moment, don’t you?
Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day,
