A coat

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.

  2. Wow, it’s gorgeous! And you did it so quickly, as well as making the smock coat for M. I don’t know how you achieve so much, incredible. Well done sis!

    • Thanks Sarah! I think I spend so much time fantiscising about the time I’m going to get without the kids, that I’ve got every second planned out beforehand and then not a second is wasted, if you know what I mean. The knitting just happens throughout the day, a row here and there and then it’s done. Love you! x
