All The Cool Kids Are Doing It


They are all making a jacket or coat or whatever.




They are all making Lady Grey... You know, with Gertie.
Sure when the whole project launched, I saw it and I was like:
"It looks so hard. I have a nice coat.... and Jeez, I'm busy"

But then they've  all been like" Making Muslins" and "Pad Stitching" and making "Bound Button Holes" and fancy fancy tailor-y seamstress stuff.

And I got jealous.



I still don't have time right now for Lady Grey...
But I'm doing a Sort-a Kind-a sew along, but way off to the side...

A Simplicity vintage How To from 1956 and a Simplicity vintage pattern circa 1940 sumpthin'.
A simpler jacket for a complicated time.
 But I got my pad stitching on.

Not as cool as the cool kids... but working on it.

Sweetie, you define cool. I too was a bit green about the coat sew along. But I decided after a few capes, a cropped jacket or two, I'll work on the coat.
