Hello All! I hope that everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving holiday! I always enjoy this time of year because I get to spend quality time with my family. Nothing exciting happens; we just sit around eating and watching football.
This is Vogue 8930, I have made this in several different colors and different fabrics. My first couple of attempts, I made with fleece but they felt really big and bulky to me. I gave the brown one to my niece and my bestie requested the green one.
I followed Mimi G’s DIY Blanket Coat Sew Along to make this coat. It was my first time sewing a coat with a lining so I was thankful for the video. I highly recommend this pattern and the tutorial; it is a great beginner project!
For my most recent version of this coat, I used a grey Ponte knit fabric from Fine Fabrics. This knit has the right amount of weight and stretch, and I am very pleased with the results. I’m also in love with this lining!
