I made this coat for my daughter with the amazing louisa coat pattern ! It was a great challenge!
When I saw this coat the first time I thought it would be perfect for my older daughter as she was asking me to sew her a coat for ages. The Louisa coat was exactly what I was looking for. The right length, a zip closure, a hood and the fact that it’s available for young teens ! I thought it was a perfect challenge! It is the first time that I asked a fabric store to participate on the design pattern promotion .« Le chien vert » the well known fabric store in Belgium, said yes to my request with no hesitation! So my daughter and I chose this classic « chevron » wool and the black and metallic pipping as I wanted to have this blue lining of my stash ! I love this wool, it is the perfect weight ! It’s better than I thought, even If I could not expect how the coat would turn with the fabric ! As the time was against me I had no time to think to much anyway ! I think I never done a coat so quickly!
