Description

I picked up this blue/grey wool in a remnant bin and I had a lovely coat pattern that I wanted to make for my daughter. I looked for some velvet for the collar and pocket welts and couldn’t find anything I liked. Then I had a brain-wave and realised that I could use my favorite cardigan that I had worn through the elbows. I’m so pleased that she has such a pretty coat for £10 and my cardigan lives on.

Material Notes

Blue/grey wool, old wool cardigan

    What an eye-catcher! I love the idea! Maybe fabric-covered buttons would have been nice too!

    When I was little I would have loved to have had a coat like that! My mom made me all the dresses I could have wanted, but never a coat like that, what a lucky little girl you have! It’s beautiful and great idea with the cardigan!
