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.
