This is my second version of Vogue 8926 (first one here). It was supposed to be a dress – I simply extended the length to the knee. However, after finishing, it really didnt look right on me as a dress. So I unpicked the belt attached to the front, put two belt loop on the side, and now a summer coat is here!
It is quite nice to wear over a dress, or as a coverup at the beach, I ended up liking it!
We went on a mini vacation @ Pajaro Dunes… rented an apartment right on the beach – it was very relaxing and the kids loved it! I pretended here that I am wearing my new summer coat with bikinis, but in reality it was super duper cold, I was in my winter coat most of the time! 😛

Love it, its gorgeous,
Tres chic! Our summers would kill someone wearing unnecessary layers, so I’m kind of jealous of a place where you could wear a jacket in the summer.
hahaha 😀 true, i should appreciate the cold summer nights here, we could do so much layering!
Looks really nice! And really different from the first version.
thank you! 😀 it is quite different, amazing how just a little change makes so much difference
