Added Dec 24, 2009
I didn’t found a winter coat I liked, so I decided to sew one.
I chose the Simplicity 2508 pattern and added belt loops, as I don’t want to lose the belt all the time.
The sleeves are a little bit too short for a winter coat. Maybe I’ll add some knitted material to make it longer. But I’m really happy that I got the linnig right, because it was the first time I lined something.
And now I just realised that the coat is buttoned up the wrong way in the first picture. Maybe I will make a better picture later.
black wool blend/coatvelour and some kind of darkblue slippery linning material (i don’t remember the exact name, sorry)
