I must have the blogging mentality now well ingrained, because despite the lack of posts, I did photograph almost all that I sewed during my absence from here. Shall I start at the latest ? (Well, the last that was actually photographed.)
Ah - pattern used - um - some combination of these two - extended to full length. I only had a remnant, and I was determined to get a full - length coat out of it. Talk about zero-waste cutting! This is all one layer -- no lining -- no facings. And to make up for the lack of collar - I "just happened to have" a suitable piece of challis for a scarf.
So - a few more pictures...
|no scarf view|
Only downfall of this coat - no pockets!!! Oh well, life just can't be perfect, now can it?
What took so long? ... construction details to follow in the next post (yes, I took pictures!) This post is long enough for my first post in over 3 months!!!
Oops! Almost forgot - I do have a picture of "coat in action".
|Trying to teach Mum to take the pictures - this one's not too bad, she only cut off my head|
