Sunday outfit

Yesterday was grey and dreary some of the time, and sunny the rest of the time.  Of course, just as I decided it's picture time - now or never - it was gloomy.  Nevertheless ...  It has definitely gotten colder, and a coat was necessary. My Robson- never blogged, but sewn as a sample for a class.  The fabric is difficult to describe, as it's sort of "fake leather", but not really.  The plasticky coating that makes the leathery look is applied in splotches.  Main thing is - it is rain resistant to a point.  Actually a perfect sort of coat for this time of year.  I did lengthen the pattern.

And under the coat - the Vogue dress that I made back when.  With my latest quirk about skirt lengths, I find this too short, but under the coat it worked.  Dresses really do make life easier.  Just one item to pop on and you're ready to go.
