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…)
