Burda 9676

Well, here is a review of Burda 9676 with bad photos. Maybe tomorrow it will be warm enough to take photos outside. :)

I really like this pattern a lot and Sunny loves her coat so much she slept in it last night. For real. It must be warm because she woke up sweaty.

The one review on Patternreview for this pattern said the hood was so pointy that it could look like a certain hate group's outfit if it were sewn in a light color. I completely agree, so if you plan to sew this pattern in a light colored fabric, I highly recommend either changing the hood's pattern piece so it isn't so pointy or adding a big pom-pom to the tip of the hood so it doesn't stand up (that's what I did).

The outer fabric is Clifford The Big Red Dog fleece and the lining is Clifford The Big Red Dog flannel that was interlined with Thinsulate batting from Vogue fabrics in Evanston.

I'll get better photos tomorrow. Hopefully it'll be a nicer day!! It's been cold here (frigid, really) and overcast. Perfect for getting the blahs!
