It’s so satisfying to say “I made a coat”. It seems like such a major item of clothing to make and I was a bit daunted but it was actually quite simple to do. Way easier than that blouse I made last month AND took less time for sure. The pattern was for an unlined coat, but I probably will line it after all so that it’s a bit warmer and to just make it look tidier. I used a pure coated linen so it’s a little bit waterproof and it was lovely to work with. It was a toss up in the shop between the linen and a thick cotton twill, but I’m so in love with linen at the moment. I’m quite pleased with it plus it has pockets, which A will be pleased about, as I have been known to use her pockets in an emergency.
Urgh these photos, I’ve learned there never is a good time to take a photo of yourself.
