Next project mission

 There is a definite chill in the air now and the dark nights are drawing in,yes winter has arrived and my thoughts turn to coats and boots always at this time of year

I pour over the glossys of winter woolens and this year the theme is certainly military and as a non follower of fashion I had not considered but on my drive to school every day I have seen this lady walking along in this

I didn't know where it was from until Megan had asked me to take a look at an item on top shops site,and there it was the military coat that I am now putting on my wish list

It then got me to thinking that I could not find a coat that I really loved for Daniel and Lucy,I'm not talking about every day coats but something a bit eye catching and so I decided to make a coat......as you do!!!

I got the pattern for this coat from http://www.ottobredesign.com/ 




It was a real happy accident in the fact that I ran out of wool for the front bodice and ended up with the spotty lining on the outside too and then a great find for the matching buttons at my local sewing shop just a walk in to town away
And I added a kinda military edge to the front

Now its Daniels turn and in this months Ottobre design magazine


I am just waiting for my delivery  of this months issue and to find some nice soft wool and this will be my next project,Im very excited to get this one made as my little chap will look such a dude in this
