I think @Acorn made a raincoat out of this Lekala pattern?

Not me - I made a wool coat out of this Lekala pattern (with buttons and no belt - it came out pretty much like a duffle coat - which would probably lend itself quite well to being a raincoat.

... I have just realised I have posted this in the wrong place, should I repost it or can someone move it for me, really sorry...

Your wish is my command... hold onto your hats...

Oh Good!  I had a look, but the fact that I have an irrational dislike of blue and yellow together means that I only have one fabric in predominantly those colours, and it definitely isn't striped.  Or a small enough pattern for this.  Or suitable for patchwork.

Lovely!  And that quilting is just gorgeous.   :D

My Featherweight (221k) was in an antique shop labelled at £85.  Mr Acorn paid less than that for it (my Christmas present just over a year ago), but I don't know how much less.  It's in pretty good condition (wiring needed slight attention, and case smells musty, but otherwise excellent).

I know 222ks are dearer and more desireable, but that is absurd.  Something definitely looks fishy.

I do actually like wallpapering.  I just don't like moving furniture and painting skirting boards.   :\

@justpottering Will you come and organise me please?  I've had the wallpaper for our bedroom for - I was going to say almost two years, but I've just checked and it's well over three.   :|   :[

@Lowena - the shelves are actually pigeonhole-type things, so not really open to dust.  It gets taken out and patted quite a lot anyway...  :|  Some of it even gets used and replaced.  The long-term stuff (ie stuff I probably out to sort out and get rid of) is in a cupboard with a door.

Well done!  I bet you can see it much better now too - I love to sit and look at the fabric on my shelves.

This one was fun - and you can't fail to love a pattern where you deliberately sew over the points.   :D   :toast:

I've never used it (or, for that matter, come across it) myself, but I know that Style Arc seems to recommend it for a lot of their patterns - trousers in particular, I think.

I thought I'd hidden the jammie dodgers.   ><

Looks like there are only fig rolls left now.   :(
