I did not think I would have the opportunity to wear this coat much at all, but I've worn it at least three times already and received many compliments! It is so nice for our cool weather that has come back! It was easy to make. I lined the coat and it has a tie belt. I will post a picture of me wearing it later.
Now I will have to make something for Mother's Day. I have the fabric in my collection, just not sure which pattern I'll use.
In the meantime, my next project is a Simplicity dress and jacket mentioned in a previous post that I expect to be wear to church this Sunday. I just want new clothes! LOL!
