Make-for-less Marni

On label-free, a request for a pattern to recreate this adorable $855 Marni stole was posted. I thought the best place to look would be Vogue Patterns. I remember some similar shaped jackets years ago by designer Geoffrey Beene. Of course, those patterns are out-of-print, but I did find Vogue 8520.

Though it would result in a lot more detail than the original, I thought it could be quite easy to adapt this into that stole. It has the same simple neckline and the rounded shoulder. In addition, the pattern as is looks a lot like the other coats in the collection.

$435 $1,220 $2,265
Anything you made would be cheaper too. Bonus.
What do you think?

Great pattern match! I so want to work on a fall coat right now, too.

That is definitely a good call on the pattern match. Mmmm, coats.
