Description

The Lady Grey by Colette Patterns is a lovely coat; it features a generous peplum, 3/4 sleeves, a glamorous wide collar and a belt.

I made this coat because of Gertie’s Lady Grey Sew-A-Long on her blog. She was generous enough to share her knowledge of tailoring techniques with the blogosphere. I learned a lot from this project and am very pleased with it. I just wish it would get cold enough in Florida for me to wear it!

Material Notes

I used wool gabardine for the outer coat shell, and a coat lining from Gorgeous Fabrics on the interior. I also used copious amounts of horsehair canvas and silk thread!

    Lovely work and it shows your attention to the details. A big Attagirl to you. I do like Colette Patterns. Sadly, they don’t consider the Plus-size consumers when they draft patterns. Nehmah
