My name is Ana. I am from Belgrade, Serbia. I am not a blog writer, but some of you might know me from Burdastyle, as AnaJan.
When I first saw an announcement for this sew along, I had Lindsay's Chanel-Style coat on my mind. I loved it, and I thought of making something similar myself. Now I see Lindsay's participating in this sew along as well :).
I started browsing through my BWOF collection (I am a Burda girl) and found several interesting patterns. Here are my picks:
I would probably alter the collar on this one and change it to a mandarin collar. Also, I think I would change the pockets.
I have some beautiful pale purple boucle with discreet golden threads in my stash. I think some dark purple embellishment would work fine with it.
In case I opt for this model, I'd have to buy a fabric, probably in the same color as on the picture.
Knowing me, I'll change my mind several times before making a final decision on pattern choice. And, I'll probably look for some more interesting patterns, so this is not a final list.
I will be quiet in the following 2 weeks, since I go on a vacation, but I'll try to follow your posts.
See you soon!
