Description

I had this pattern laying here around for quite a while, then I finally bought the fabric, but I was so scared to make mistakes that I skipped this project again and again. Last week I finally made it. I am quite satisfied with the sewing, not so much with the fit. I should have made a muslin, but I had no time for this. I think it looks okay overall. And I love the color.

Material Notes

Wool fabric I got cheap at an online store, lining is from our local fabric store
Pattern is Lady Grey by Colette patterns

    So beautiful on you! I think it fits wonderfully from the pictures. We always tend to be hardest on ourselves though. Great job!

    Turned out nice, I have this pattern and have been avoiding it as well. Maybe you will inspire me to get on it ;)

      It was not as hard as I thought, so you should try it.
      Thank you!
