Another Cup of Lady Grey

Added Sep 15, 2011

Coquitlam, Canada






I made Colette Pattern’s Lady Grey coat last year. I love it, and get tons of compliments on it, but knew there was a way to bag the lining by machine, rather than by hand. I finally found my instructions, but decided to make a new coat instead of simply fixing the one I had (a huge fabric sale helped, too!). Now I have 2 great coats!

Underneath, I am wearing Colette’s Rooibos Dress.

Material Notes

The coat is made out of a fabulous blue wool melton, and the lining is polyester.

    Thanks for all the great comments! While I’m not looking forward to Winter, at least it means I’m getting to wear my coat(s)!

      Thanks! I had our photo teacher at school take it (since it’s hard to take a picture of yourself).
