New Year – New Coat ?

Hi all and a belated Happy New Year to you all! I just don’t seem to have the time to update the blog as often as I would like, so I’m going to try and update at least once a month – more often if I’ve got some tutorial or bit of advice.

I’ve been a little busy over the past month or so making a very quick last minute Christmas present of a Garden Apron for my Mum (self-drafted), another crossover top (threadcount 1502) and McCalls M7478 50’s coat for my flatmate – pics below.


I’m in the process of making another coat (same pattern) for my mum, but I’m having to make alterations, so I made up a Toile (muslin) and will create a tutorial for the alterations and the full construction – in the meantime, here is the basic Muslin with the real fabrics in the foreground.
