Winter coat











I should really call this the yearly winter coat challenge.

After last year and the year before that I knew what to expect. And before I started I read my 'If you make another winter coat' note of advice, which made the pattern making and sewing fairly easy. Until I had to put the zipper in.
How can one zipper take up so much time? Will zippers and I ever become friends?

I don't know what it is about mittens attached to a string like that, but they always make me smile. Kids have better things to do than worry about where their mittens are.

Love it - the zipper stress was worth it, it makes the coat. I'm sure SHE loves the purple lining. :)

Great coat! I'm definitely filing this one away mentally for inspiration next winter for my kids. A big one for me would be great too ;-)

Amazing! I'm speechless every time I come across such 'Nähwunderwerke' - can hardly believe that a person can do something (just 'cause I cannot at all, I suppose ;-).
