My Lady Grey

Last Friday I finished my Lady Grey Coat! I was so happy I did a little dance around the house. I'm quite chuffed at the fact I only started sewing this June and managed to make this coat. Extra special thanks to Gertie and to all my readers and friends who helped me along the way. So without further ado here it goes (apologies for the not great photos  - click on them for larger versions):

I need to buy some brooches to put on the lapel. The one I have here is way too small.


A shot from behind:

The lining. Again, the colour is not truly representative but close.

When I finished I noticed I had no way of hanging the coat on my coat hanger so decided to sew a little tag and sew my name on it. My fingers were in serious pain after but I love it.

  1. OMG it is so wonderful! I love how you've styled it too - you look like a 60s Bond girl, about to take Sean Connery up in a plane and chuck him out over the sea! This is a lovely colour on you. Great job - it all looks very neat and tidy and lining looks grand.

    Enjoy shopping for more brooches!

  2. Blimey that coat is marvellous. Cannot believe you only started in June! I am currently trying to make bags for a sale on Friday and have somehow lost my interlining! Love the colours
