Every year about this time, I think, ‘right then, lets make a nice warm coat’.
Then I dawdle and procrastinate, think well… maybe next week, and before I know it, it’s Spring and I can get on with making those nice fun summer dresses again.
This year, though, it’s going to be different. It’s definitely going to happen.
Firstly I have to choose who I am making this for. My husband is a good bet, he is forgiving and frankly would wear anything. I’ve got a couple of patterns to choose from, the good solid Colette Albion or the trendy Thread Theory Peacoat. We’ve got this nice soft Polyester Heavy Felt that would be up for the job. Mmmm but what about the lining…..
Then again, I quite fancy a girlie version of the Albion too or maybe The Grainline Cascade Duffle Coat. We have some nice Boucle fabric, that would be good for the Colette Anise Jacket, or a Victoria Blazer or one of those nice Morris Blazers from Grainline Patterns.
Some Gabachino Fabric might be perfect for a slightly more lightweight Sewaholic Robson Coat
Mind you, I’ve always fancied a Denim version of the Serendipity Jordan Jacket, that would be great for the Spring,
There you go, I’m procrastinating again!
