Next up piece 2 - sorry about the lack of order in presenting the pieces... this however is my favorite piece of this 4 piece set. New Look 6325 coat.
The pattern was purchased over a year ago and the fabric was bought over a year ago too, but I didn't get it made last winter. I was determined to have it ready for this winter season, so this contest gave me the deadline I needed to get it done.
I love the colour, love the collar, love the simplicity but stylishness. Love that it is warm and squishy but not too heavy to wear...
When I was buying the fabric in Tamworth at the PR week-end get-together, one of the girls (Hi Sandra!) suggested I partially line it. So I did line it. I fully lined it as I decided it would make it so much nicer to wear. I used the Connie Long guide to sewing linings, and it worked a treat.
The jacket is made from boiled wool and the lining is a stretch satin (polyester). I found a lovely big old leather button in my stash and love how it looks on this coat. I did interface behind the button and snaps, but am wondering if I need to do more to support the button, but I shall see how it goes.
The review is here and next post I will present my 4 piece endless combinations collection... Ciao kittens!
