Sew Over It - Cocoon Coat

Pattern: Sew Over It Cocoon Coat

Fabric: Double-faced wool coating from Metro Textiles. Lining: Flannel-backed satin purchased online from Vogue Fabrics.

Construction notes: I made a size 12, as per my measurements, though I would size down next time! It's especially roomy through the shoulders. I replaced the welt pockets with patch pockets because patch pockets are particularly on trend now! I also crocheted the coordinating wool cowl.

Nina Lee London - Camden Pinafore

Pattern: Nina Lee London Camden Pinafore purchased at Ray Stitch in London while on vacation.

Fabric: Polyester, faux tweed suiting also purchased at Ray Stitch.

Construction notes: No alterations made! My only complaint as that the princess seams do not ease together very well, and resulted in some wrinkling over the bust. I noticed that other people have had this issue as well. I would definitely fix the curves on the pattern before making this again.

McCall's 7775

Pattern: McCall's 7775

Fabric: Linen

Construction notes: Getting the fit right was tricky with this pattern because of the twisted neckline. I fudged it a lot - but it turned out okay in the end! I love wearing this dress on hot summer days.
