A winter coat made with love for my gorgeous sister Angeline.
The coating fabric is a stunning wool/cashmere blend from Tessuti Fabrics
The lining is a silk cotton blend that I purchased from the do-it-yourself fabric website Spoonflower The print design of this fabric is by heidikenny
This coat, made using Butterick 5145 is inspired by the hot pink coat worn by Zooey Deschanel on the TV series ‘New Girl’.
The coat is fully lined, with the addition of bound button holes; my new favourite technique!
This coat is so super soft and the colour alone is bright enough to warm you up in the bleakest of winters. Pity it’s Summer in Australia!
