Liz's Lady Grey Coat

Added Jan 10, 2011

Chicago, Illinoi...






This is the Lady Grey from the Colette Pattern line, and sewn in the Blog for better sewing sew-along with Gertie.

I used a wool tweed for the shell, with a lilac bemberg lining, and stabilized and tailored with hair canvas.

    Great great job! There have been so many Lady Grey babies, thanks to Gertie! Soon will come the Crepe babies too!

    Your coat is gorgeous and looks very very neat! I love the bow!

    Very stylish. It fits you sew well and the bow is a nice touch.

    You look amazing! Yours seems slightly longer, I like this length better.

      I did add about 2 inches to the length of the peplum. It just seemed to hit at a nicer place on my body vs. the normal length.

      Although I can see the shorter length would be cute for a spring jacket version.
