My Ella Coat is Done!!

And it's so pink and fun!!!

Pattern: Ella Coat for Women
Needles: Size 7
Size: Smallest
Yarn: Classic Elite Yarns Liberty Wool
After starting from the bodice and working increases, I added 1” (6 rows) before beginning arm holes.
I did the original ruffles because I thought that with the striping, the picot ruffle was too much.
I did three buttons right beneath the bust. I was tempted to do a zipper, but decided against it. This was for two reasons--one being that the bust was a touch small and two because I had a big pink stripe right above my bust which made my girls look saggy. Haha. Anyways, I love the three buttons which accentuate the curves in all the right places.
I would put how many skeins I used…and I really tried to keep track…but I lost track. Sorry!
