The cold days are gone - Ultimate Member Model Challenge

Added Apr 25, 2015

by LoveJane

Montreal, Canada






I made this coat especially to participate to the Ultimate member model challenge. I finished it within a week because I was so excited to sew again! I changed the collar because I just love Peter Pan collars, and I also gave more width to the sleeves because it was to tight on my wrists. And since it is a spring coat, I put a cute floral lining inside! I want to thank my friend and professional photographer Vanessa Guay-Baker: http://vanessagbaker.com /
J’ai fait ce manteau spcialement pour participer au concours The ultimate member model challenge. Je l’ai fini en une semaine tellement j’etais excitee de coudre a nouveau! J’ai change le col parce que j’adore les cols Claudine, et j’ai donne plus d’ampleur a la manche puisqu’elle serrait trop mes poignets. Et puisque c’est un manteau de printemps, j’ai mis une belle doublure fleurie l’interieur! Merci a mon amie et photographe professionnelle Vanessa Guay-Baker: http://vanessagbaker.com

Material Notes

I used wool for the coat and polyester for the lining./Le manteau est fait de laine et la doublure est en polyester.




Spring, Fall

    Thank you…We ‘ve just finished with those photos but I’ve lost all my enthusiasm…While taking those damned photos (for which I’ve so much insisted) somebody broke into our car and stole some of my husband’s equipment (he is a photogapher). By the way he is from Montreal where his family is still lives!

    This is a beautiful coat and I love the square poppers behind the buttons. The lining is delightful for spring.

      Thanks! I also thought a floral pattern would work perfectly for spring :)

    I’m so excited to see this…It’s gorgeous! I’ll upload my version tomorrow as I’m still begging my husband to take some photos. I’ve been wondering why nobody had chosen to make it. Good luck….
