It’s the coat I never knew I needed…
Last month’s Minerva Crafts Bloggers’ Network project was this duster coat in a burgundy cotton drill, that I made for my sister.
For the first time ever, I made the same pattern twice, literally back to back. I was so happy with my first Sew Over It Coco Jacket that I went straight on to make another one from a black Linton Tweed wool that I’d been holding onto for exactly this purpose.
I tried out the new Sew Over It Coco Jacket pattern. My verdict?:
The trench coat is one of the first things I think of when I think about classic French style. I have decided I need some me-made trench coats in my life.. largely inspired by my good sewing friend Bianca who made not one but TWO gorgeous ones recently (read all about those here and here).[…]
So, two things: I became a member of the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network! and My first project for them is a self-drafted black cashmere wool blend coat.
