Saint Denis, France
First coat ever : sooooo proud of myself!
A pattern from “les intemporels pour futures mamans”
ok , if there is french poeple reading me, I think they’ll understand what I’m talking about and maybe also think : “great patterns, easy and comfortables”
It’s maybe true for kids patterns, but believe me, not for adults….and especially not for that coat…The explanations were, let’s see….almost absents and too succincts to be enough
Fortunately, I found at my local library most of the explanations i needed in a DVD edited by Burda (thank you thank you, thank you!!!).
Anyway, I did achieve this project and I’m quite proud of the result excepted the snaps..YES I ADMIT I WAS AFRAID MAKING BUTTON HOLES IN THIS MAGNIFICENT WOOL (45€ ).
I was too afraid to ruin the whole project…
Finally I’m really happy with the result, it’s warm and my growing belly has enough room for the next 5 months, and maybe this coat can also make a good carrying-baby coat next winter….
Things I’ve changes :
lengthened it about 15 cms
added 4 cms to the arms
didn’t make button holes :) or :( ???
Boiled wool bought at sacrés coupons from old Vanessa Bruno’s collection
and cotton with a bit of spandex at sacrés coupons too, from a spanish designer (I don’t recall his name sorry….)
and too obviously 6 big snaps… :(
