But she has worn it!
We had a Christmas party last night and it was chilly!
(Chilly for us, 15 celsius, 59 fahrenheit)
A little time back the Oliver+S Blog hosted a sew along for the School Days coat.
I have not joined a sew along for an age and as my baby coat is 17 years old I figured a new one was in order.
I used so oh-so-soft woollen coating that I picked up for under $10/m at a fabric store in Melbourne.
The lining was another bargain. Some silky Lecien cotton sateen I picked up in a bulk buy on eBay.
As always, the coat is another excellent O+S pattern with all the pieces fitting together nicely.
However, I cannot recommend Deb's finishing techniques strongly enough.
Her ingenious hemming method saved me hours of hand sewing and gave a flawless finish.
Here is Trixie wearing the size 6-12 months at three months of age.
Plenty of room to grow.
Faux timber buttons sewed with red thread funky up the sweetness overload.
That's enough photos Mummy.
Thank you Deb, Carol and Amanda for running a great sew along.
