Just completed my first coat. It took quite a long time to work through one challenge after the other. I have never made a coat before and am relearning my limited skills from many years ago. I chose Melton wool before I had a project in mind so the coat was shorter than I would normally have made it. It was finished with antique buttons, needle felting and a beautiful and colourful lining.
I am happy with the outcome and have worn in numerous times since completing.
Black Melton wool, polyester lining, antique buttons, needle felting of my own design
