Cold Cold Weather and a Handmade coat


This coat is the result of my sewing class this semester. It was the last project. I baught the purple Wool on St-Hubert for a cheap 7$ a meter and the black Kasha linning for 5$ a meter.In total this coat coast 35$ to make. I chose to do a huge oversize collar for added warmth and style, it's perfect with my huge pinpals pin :)

I am pretty happy with the end product, it was alot of hard work and freak outs on the sewing machine, especially when came the time to do the sleeves and linning but it all came together neatly in the end :)

I hope you enjoy these shots of it in the very cold temperatures we are experiencing over here in Montreal, burrrrrr!
