The pink coat.
Made with zero alterations! I actually followed a pattern to the letter for once.
Oh, well, I used 4 buttons instead of 6. Here is the pattern.
I should have been able to wear this coat last winter, but I got a little lazy with it. Better late than never.
Pale pink doesn't feature much in my wardrobe. It just doesn't occur to me. This suede-y stuff is so lovely and soft, and easy to sew with. I lined it in white, thinking it would go with the pink, but it turned out to be slightly transparent.
It's not a very warm coat, but it will do for cold sunny winter days. This is not a coat for wet muddy weather. I'm also thinking about making a detachable fur collar to go with it.
The thing I love about this design is the way it curves into the back and then flares out.
It's a little crinkly after being 'stored' for the past year (ie, flung over the back of my chair waiting to be finished) but I'm not sure I can just take an iron to this fabric. I'm hoping all the lines will just magically fall out when I wear it.
I kept my face out of these photos because Molly threw a hissy fit the other day when I dared to hug her and she actually scratched me right down the middle of my nose. It's not pretty.
At least the coat is pretty! Bring on winter!
