While I'm still crazy about DMK's Double Breasted Coat pattern, this time I wanted something different: a standing collar instead of a peter pan collar, and some more straight lines. So with DMK's pattern as a starting point, I drew something new, adding some nice details (straps on the sleeves and in the back, and little faux-pockets in the front). I used some super cheap fabric (€4/m!) from the amazing Rotterdam market.
As Norah is getting more and more reluctant about posing for mommy, I organized a little leaves-gathering session in our back yard, with Mr. StraightGrain taking some in-action pics. Of course, it was only when I was uploading the pictures on Mr. StraightGrain's computer (mine crashed, remember?) that I noticed I hadn't closed the last button of the coat. But I assume that her superflashy boots will get away with all the attention anyway ;-)
Happy holidays, everyone!
