Description

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!

Material Notes

linen/cotton blend, satin, cotton ribbon, buttons

    This is a beautiful jacket! I would of never guessed you had to sew the collar 3 times. I love the peter pan collar but have yet to succeed in making it look good. Love the jacket, beautiful work.
