Great Yarmouth, ...
When I saw this material in the shop just before Xmas, I knew it would be perfect for a winter coat and so I bought 2 metres of it. Once at home the search for a pattern started and I found a lovely one in the 2011 january magazine (short coat no. 138/01/2011). The pattern called for a few techniques that were new to me and it took me a little while to figure it all out (collar, concealed buttons) but I got there in the end, though no thanks to my lazy assistant :-)))
