At the weekend I made a new spring coat, its the Maker’s Atelier unlined raw edge coat pattern. Found the 100% boiled wool at Dragonfly Fabrics, its not the cheapest but is 100% wool and a joy to sew and wear. I made 1 alteration, its 30cm longer than the original and also changed the taper of the side seams to adjust for the length.
The belt is vintage and was made by my great aunt, its hand painted wooden buckle and appliquéd with wool felt. Amazingly it has seen lots of use and still going strong!
and at the side
Thinking of making a new version for the coat, maybe embroidered? So love this pattern, would recommend to anyone and perfect for a beginner.
