The pattern is "The Catherine Coat" by Serendipity Studio.I dug thru my fabric stash and found just what I wanted! Red is my most favorite color, and I wanted to make something that would give me multi-uses...something that would look very pretty dressed up or cute and fun with jeans as everyday wear.
This coat is a sweet and feminine design that features several options and can be anywhere from simple and tailored to fancy and ruffled! The coat has a gentle A-line with an Empire waist, which gives it a very flattering fit.
The back of the coat is just as cute as the front.
I love the gathers at the waistline!
Another option with this coat is the sleeves. I chose to make the
cuffs wide so that I could turn them up, making them a comfortable 3/4 length.
Since I plan to wear this as an open jacket,
I didn't want to make any buttonholes, but
still embellish it with buttons.
I dug thru my vintage button stash
and found exactly what I was looking for!
Silver buttons and just the variety I wanted!I hope I have inspired you to do some sewing for yourself every now and then! What I like about this pattern is that I will use it again and can make an entirely different look!
