Wellington, New ...
Katie Brown of Papercut Patterns sent me this pattern to test out for a class. Was going to keep it as a sample but my students have convinced me that it needs to be worn! Especially with winter arriving… having said that Katie reckons it’d work really well in any fabric. Am keen to try a short sequinned version!
It is double breasted and has a peter pan collar, welt pockets and a facing. Instructions don’t include a lining but would be easy enough to cut a lining from the main pattern minus the facing.
You can see photos of the construction process on my blog.
Don’t look too closely at my poorly placed buttons ;)
