Description

I made a jacket based on my lady grey inspired coat - just chopped it short! due to lack of materials i had some restrictions, and the button hole placement wasnt ideal- mid night button hole sewing is never a good idea. but the material is soft and nice, and it fits well and is the perfect jacket for the office! i had worn it 5 times since i finished it last week!

    I think this is lovey! I too think this is nicer than a longer coat.

    oh this is lovely….I’ve read that Lady Grey is hard if you’re petitie, that it sort of overwhelms a smaller frame (so I have avoided it) but I love your small and snug version….the wide collar really works on this scale….now i am tempted :)

    Hi there, great work! And you have done a great job! I hope that if I continue to practice my sewing skills, I too will one day be able to create such great things! Enjoy and hope you will get a lot of wear from it!!

    Love it! I’ve had reservations about Lady Grey because I’m little and think it will swamp me, but the short version looks much more wearable. Good work!
