Fall is coming and its getting colder. So I sewed my first coat.
I took the pattern from a coat I bought a few years ago. Therefore I’ve pinned sandwich paper on the coat and have drawn along the seams. I know that others prefer planes that painters use for covering the floor. But I think the result is alright.
Sewing the coat wasn’t as complicated as i thought. Only the lining was a little bit fiddly.
Now I need to come to a decision concerning the buttons.
