Getting back in the swing of it




And what a better way to get back in the swing of things is to make a swing coat!!!


I wanted to make a simple project one sunday afternoon.This was just going to be a what I can find in my fabric kinda project as I really need to use up fabrics that have been laying around for a while.

I am always too impatient to order fabric and wait for the postman and so I buy as I see with no particular idea in mind and usually I can find something (albeit not exactly right)

I realised that I did not have large enough pieces for the lining but I managed to find something that sort of goes together and although I dont love the star fabric in this coat its given me ideas for the next coat I make from this pattern found  here           


The only thing I may do next time is slightly alter the volume in the sleeves and make them longer but here is the finished result
