Making of …

I had this pattern on my sewing list since 2013. I even had the fabrics lying around here: The very beautiful ochre yellow needlecord with the subtle brown paisley print and the brown lining fabric. Everything ready to get started. But I hesitated for so long because I was not sure if I would be wearing a coat in such a light colour in everyday life.

Now I finally made it. And the waiting had something positive to it afterwards: I could sew it one number smaller than I would have in 2013 ;-)

The pattern is M6800 from McCall’s, the cover model B, and I did not have to make any changes to the pattern. I wanted to make the detachable fur collar as well, but I own such a beautiful fake fur vest that has the same effect when I am wearing it beneath the coat. So I skiped the collar :-)
