This is a little woolen coat that I fell in love with more at every stitch! It is a vintage hounds-tooth wool from someone’s collection that was never utilized, then given away in hopes it would find the right home. Well I am so delighted that it came my way.
I used the pattern Simplicity 8305, altering in a soft lining and making sure the faux sherpa exceeds past the cuff. When dealing with wool this itchy I made sure to keep any edges off her skin.
I just can’t get over the cuteness of this one. Maybe it’s because I had been binge watching Call the Midwife with all their 50’s & 60’s fashion…
The only problem I had was that together these materials were so thick I was basically forcing the binding into place, I just went over and over with the thread and surprisingly you can’t tell too much.
These pockets are fantastic, able to fit a proper Benjamin Bunny book with room to spare…
I hope your fall sewing is going as great as can be!
Thanks for taking a look,
