Now I want to make all the coats!! I have been planning Butterick 4610 for a while, and already have the fabric. A toile has been made, but I need to do some fitting alterations.
I also want to use Vogue 8346 to try and recreate this gorgeous coat I found ages ago on Pinterest, which I sadly can't find a source for.
I was thinking of maybe using Melton wool for it, but Lara from Dreaming Avonlea recently made this gorgeous coat in Loden, so I'm thinking of using it instead.
And a few weeks ago I spotted this 1960s coat on Instagram, which is right up my street. It turned out that it's from The Great British Sewing Bee: Sew Your Own Wardbook book, which I promptly ordered on ebay. I think this would be lovely in dark purple or burgurdy.
But coat-making is pretty epic, and at the minute I'm all about the simple sewing, so it's pyjama bottoms for me!
Have a great weekend,
