As a beginner, i didn’t think i would make a coat for years, but i just couldn’t let winter pass me by without trying!
The coat is so warm and is fully lined! First time I’ve ever lined anything, definitely makes a difference!
My advice is to beginners is to try projects like these, and just take each step as it comes. Its a big job but not too bad in little bits :)
2m of a wool blend? Lining. Snaps.
