Papercut Sapporo Coat in Blue Wool and Faux Fur

I sewed a coat for someone else! A gorgeous blue wool Sapporo Coat with faux fur sleeves. In late winter 2019, right before I discovered I'd need major surgery ( read about it in this post ), my cousin showed me a child's coat that she discovered online, and asked if I'd sew her an adult sized one. The coat was unique in that it had faux fur trim in the middle of the sleeve. Of course I said yes!  After all, she's family AND has been cutting and styling my hair for more than twenty years. I was thrilled to be able to use my talent to give back to her. I immediately purchased a beautiful bright blue wool and faux fur from SR Harris . But I was stuck as to which pattern to use. Then Boom! It hit me! The Papercut Sapporo Coat would be perfect! While it didn't have the same shape as the child's coat, the cocoon shape would look fabulous on my cousin. Fortunately she was extremely patient with me, as I wasn't able to sew her coat until this year du
