Originally, I was going to make a construction notes post first and make you wait for the reveal, but I am not a cruel person and it just seemed mean to not reveal the coat and make you read through a post about the construction and then not post the coat reveal until another day! I just couldn’t do it. It actually prevented me from completing the post on the construction!
So, screw it! Here she is! My Vogue 8346!
Phew, I feel better now!
I love it. I’ll sing more praises for this coat later, but I adore it. And it is super warm. We have extreme cold weather warnings here in Toronto (feels like -27 Celsius/-16 Fahrenheit) and I’m toasty warm in my coat. My face is frozen solid, though!
