Self Stitched September - Leggings and Uptown Coat
Today I am wearing a pair of tights that I had made quite a while ago and mainly to wear under my ski pants in the winter. I thought I would put them on today given the cold damp weather we're having and I learned my lesson from a couple of weeks ago. The pattern is Kwik Sew 3636 and the fabric is a grey double knit jersey. Don't you love my silver shoes?
My real pride and joy is this Uptown Coat by Favorite Things made with fabric from designers Maxwell & Pillow. I found this pattern at Market and after seeing the sample I thought it would be a perfect winter coat.
I lined the inside using flannel from Cloud 9 and even put in a layer of wool batting. One thing is for sure; this is a Minnesota coat!
Only one problem.... when I put it on I thought I looked pregnant. :-(
Sasha Westin from Fabulissdid try to warn me that this coat might not be my style... but did I listen?? NO! So now it's a store display and I'll be making a different coat for winter - one that Sasha says will look good on me. Guess I better hurry - the weather, is changing fast!
