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.

  1. Lovely coat and have seen that faux leather type of fabric and wondered about, but didn't buy it.
