Description

One of the first things my daughter said on looking at this coat was “It looks like Anastasia”.

I am hoping this will be her main winter coat this year. It’s really lovely, although the sleeves are a little narrow (they look great but it’s hard to fit a sweater underneath). It’s based on a free pattern from m-sewing.com. The pattern went together nicely, but the instructions are very basic.

Although I’ve made several coats now, this is the heaviest, and includes my first attempts at bound buttonholes and padstitching on the collar.

Material Notes

Boiled camry wool blend shell (actually a knit!), felted interlining, flannel underlining, and Kasha (a flannel-backed satin) lining.

    Beautiful, inside and out! It must be me, but I enjoy making, buying, and wear autumn/winter clothes more than summer. Tho I am glad we don’t have as much snow as you guys ;)
