Description

When my favourite grey cashmere sweater got two large holes in the sleeves, I decided to boil wash it to make a duffle coat for my baby. I took a basic pattern from a sweatshirt jacket he already had and improvised as I progressed. I used one of his flannel wraps for the lining and edged the whole thing in a satin blanket binding. (I still need to perfect my binding skills as the stitching on the reverse is rather wonky…)

Material Notes

Boiled wool, flannel lining, satin binding

      Thank you! I’ve just been scanning your project on how to make your own dress form. Timely, as I’m looking around for one at the moment but the best ones look so pricey. I’ll read your post properly and see if i think I’m up to making one…

      I’m sure you’ll manage, I made it much harder then it needed to be ;) Just read the ‘lessons learned’ and you’ll be fine :)
