I was given this magazine from a great friend that has tons, and I mean tons, of great modern patterns. This was my first attempt at making something from the magazine. It wasn't for beginners. I'm not saying the coat was hard, but the instructions were. I am finding that everyone has different instructions to their garments, and find it very hard sometimes. But maybe that is why I love making clothes. It takes my mind off of everything that is going on, or has gone on in the day. And let me tell you with four kids.....it is NEVER ending. Back to the coat. I can't wait for Hadlee to wear it. I am thinking of making a little hat and scarf with it. What are you thoughts?
