But I don't want to look like a little prairie chic walking around downtown Toronto, so I made a new fall coat especially for this trip (well, that's the excuse I'm using, but truthfully I just love making coats).
I used this pattern with a lot of alterations.

The pattern didn't call for a lining but I wanted something to shield the wind so I lined the back and the sleeves, and then I ran out of fabric.
The fringing is really what makes this coat stand out. I love it. It took about ten times longer to do it than I thought it would but it was sooooo worth it.
So? Will I fit in with all the city slickers in Toronto? I don't know if my coat is downtown chic or ranch hand trendy. What do you think?
PS....I also cut off half of my hair!!!
