Description

This is the second coat I made from my original coat pattern.

The pattern is made for my mother who is more of an average height of Japanese women than I, so it looks a bit shorter on me than it is supposed to be.

I made this coat to be displayed in a caf owned by a friend of mine in Japan. I think I will make some minor changes to perfect the pattern further… not very satisfied with sleeves and upper skirt pattern…

    The coat is great and really comes at the right time, as I am struggling with one myself now and I need a good push to press on, it is not the easiest project I have made. Yours is really pretty and a good motivation not to give up with mine! I love your new hairstyle as well!

      Thank you!! I hope your coat is coming along! Can’t wait to see the final result!:)
      Thanks for the comment about my hair… I just cut it myself one afternoon and I was just starting to regret it…maybe it’s not so bad!

      Haircut is not something permanent, so even if you dont like it eventually, it will grow back! But I honestly like it on you!
      My coat has made some progress, but I have a new job and until I settle in completely, time and energy for sewing is very scarce.
