Here’s my latest project; a spring coat with little pockets, raglan sleeves and satin lining. I used my mint green dress as a pattern.
I had the biggest struggles with the collar (actually I sewed it something like three times over again) but after all I was pleased how the coat came out.
The fabric was not the best choice for this long coat but I just couldn’t help myself after I had seen it. We’ll have lots of joyful ironing sessions together!
