Sewist: Connie

Project: Child's coat
Fabric: 100% wool coating
Lining: 100% rayon with 100% cotton stripe piping
Closures: Buttons from AAF
Pattern: OOP Burda child's coat
Notes: Connie is a great sewist with whom I have had the pleasure of sewing for the last 36 years! Often, she sews for her grandchildren and this coat she made for Julia is truly a masterpiece. Made from an unusual piece of Italian wool embellished with variegated yarns, this coat has large bound buttonholes made from 4 different contrasting fabrics which match the colors of the large buttons. The lining and piping add whimsical touches to this beautiful creation which was obviously made with lots of love!
