On another note I finally finished a coat I’ve been working on for awhile. I found this beautiful purple herringbone wool blend on sale and knew it would be perfect for a coat.

I used McCall’s M6445 Coat Pattern. I really liked it, and it was easy except for the semi set-in sleeve part. I really like the cut even though it is oversized.

Instead of buttons and buttonholes I ended up doing plastic snaps. It worked because the coat isn’t too thick. It was much faster than buttonholes, there was no hand-sewing, and I really like the look of it.

I did a special technique for the lining that I’ll teach you next week. I’m really excited to share it!
