Ok, so it has only taken me since the start of November 2014 to complete this beauty and was beginning to wonder if it wouldn't be ready until November 2015.
To re-capp, this is the 1960's coat from Sew Over It. I attended the workshops at the Clapham store and was taught by the lovely Julie Johnston who breaks down the coat construction into manageable steps. There is quite a bit of homework between classes but it is worth it in the end.
Pattern: Sew Over It 1960's coat
Fabric: Cashmere and wool blend from a shop on Goldhawk Road (£Expensive p/m)
What new things did I learn / do?
- Fusible facings on wool
- Clipped collars and shoulders to improve internal structure
- Internal shoulder pads
- Fully lined garment
|Back to the 1980's - shoulder pad time!|
|Fushia pink lining|
