Made myself a coat!
« on: February 17, 2020, 22:09:41 PM »
Made my first ever coat! It’s a very simple one with not much fitting needed, but I’m still super chuffed with it. I lined it and all! I was going to bag the lining but I couldn’t get it right in my head so just hand sewed it.

Pattern is Riga by Orageuse patterns. I used mohair coating and viscose twill lining both from Fabworks. It’s not as warm as I would like, I think I should have interlined it, but at least I can wear it well into spring and again in autumn!

Well done, it's a big thing to make a coat.  I love the lining, it's so hard to find printed fabric for lining.
Life's too short for ironing.

It may be a simple pattern, but it's still a coat - a lined coat

Well done you.

Brilliant and brave too.  :) I have fabric and pattern for a coat, it's been in a box for over 8 months now, I'm not ready to try it yet.  That looks lovely on and the colour really suits you  :)

That's great.  Making a coat is a BIG sewing job and it's turned out well. 

Wear it and be proud.  :loveit:
