Description

Three months later, I’ve finally finished! I’m one of the many that joined Gertie’s Lady Grey sew along, only I didn’t really know what I was in for. I thought, hey cool, I’ll make a coat….
I’m so glad I followed through and finished. It’s not perfect but I’m awfully proud of all the work that went in to it. This was a wonderful learning experience and I feel that I have really flexed my sewing muscle on this project. I learned lots of new and advanced techniques as well as learning how to do some basic things better. AND I have this fabulous new red coat to top it all off!

Lots more boring sewing talk on my blog

Material Notes

Wool flannel twill, silk twill lining, lots of interface-y things inside :)

    Hi Liza Jane,

    I´ve been seeing your photos and I put my hut down in front of you. You´re really hard working lady. But the most exciting thing about your project is that you look gorgeous in your red hot coat. Well done, Liza Jane. You should be proud of yourself. Andrea from Slovakia

    Wow, that’s stunning! I have material which I decided to make into a coat, and for this moment I didn’t know what kind of coat. Now I know, thank you :)
