The initial idea for this project was to make a muslin to try the pattern. But, I’ve never made a muslin in my sewing career because I have always been so impatient and anxious to see the outcome of my work. Therefore, my muslin turned into a real sewing project. The only difference is that I used a really cheap fabric from my stash, instead of red wool I’m still trying to find in local fabric shops. The pattern is from BWOF 8/2008, #115. Love the result :).
Viscose for the lining I had in my stash but never sewed anything from it because I didn’t like the print
Buttons that my aunt gave me (they’re like 15 years old :)
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
