Goldilocks' Luxe Coat

Portland, Maine,...






A stroke of inspiration hit me this week and you are now gazing upon my newest creation! Some of you have mentioned that you miss seeing my work, and I am doing what I can to remedy that. So, about the pattern: what a pain in the keister! To start off, I shortened it by 4 inches because the pattern pieces just looked so long. I did not include the patch pockets, they just didn’t feel right. Instead I made a tie, since no other closure was apparent. The rest of it wasn’t very difficult, aside from the cuffs (try shoving 3 layers of fleece under YOUR presser foot!). Now lets talk about that fabric. You might not know this, but I suffer from a neigh incurable disease called Silky Fabric Denial Syndrome (SFDS). Common symptoms include underestimating the difficulties of working with silky fabrics, forgetting about the difficulties of working with silky fabrics, and ignoring the difficulties of working with silky fabrics. Please, get yourself tested, as SFDS is a common ailment amongst our kind.

Maybe I’m being a little dramatic, but anyway…I love the finished product, although it is a bit larger than I would have liked. It looks great with skinny jeans and makes me feel glamorous!

    This is very cute. I imagined a pair of red heels and a red tam (hat) or what ever they are called. Also your photo shot is gorgeous.

    Super glamorous! It reminds me a little of Colette Patterns’ Lady Grey : http://www.colettepatterns.com/shop/lady-grey

    Simply gorgeous. SFDS is an actual illness? I thought I was just crazy. Any natural remedies, other than staying away from the fabric store.

    Very glamorous, and it looks very, very comfy as well :D I think I suffer from SFDS too… but I’ve learnt my lesson after sewing my formal dress (georgette + crepe = lots of tears & bad words).

    I agree! It really is glamorous and I believe very warm at the same time! I couldn’t help but laugh as it hit me that I also suffer from the same syndrome. You’ve done a wonderful job!

    i wanted to make something like that once… but i discovered that it could look a little like a robe i have that i wear around the house :( maybe it’s all about the color…
