Another project to use up fabric. I am not quite satisfied with the result. I am not sure it it is flattering for me. First day I wear it, I spoiled it with oil. It seems that it washed out, but the fabric let a lot of color in the water. Good to know, so I will not wash this in the machine. And I am sorry for the bad picture, but I still had no time for ironing it. Will make worn pics as soon as possible.

Second piece for my vintage challenge. It was really easy to sew. And the wool was good to work with. I am not sure about the finished dress. Maybe it´s not my type of garment.

Lady Grey Coat

Fabric: Red wool and Lining
Patterns: Colette 1010
Time to complete: 10 hours
First worn:
February 2011
Wear again?
Yes

I finally finished this coat. If you remeber I wanted to sew it since December last year, but skipped it again and again. Main reason was that I was scared of it. I didn´t want to make a mistake and ruin this. Fortunately almost all went well and after a while I love to wear this coat. It´s a very unusal cut and the color is love.
