Decided to make this for my other half’s Christmas, despite never having made a coat before or properly knowing how my sewing machine works. As long as you don’t look too closely at the pockets I think it looks alright. Only just realised the pattern said ‘advanced’ once I’d finished – oops.
It isn’t that wonky, I only have a girly dress form, and the fez is optional.
It’s a grey/green wool suiting with stripe lining and anchor buttons, because that’s what the boy picked.
