Thank you to everyone for your lovely comments on my new coat. And in case you were curious how she looks on a real person, here we go!
My new wool coat.
I had grand ideas about making a new fuchsia blouse to look super snazzy with the open neckline, but I did not have time this weekend, and I did not want to put off wearing the finished product! So I made do with a bright pink scarf instead.
I pulled out one of my favorite wool pencil skirts (made early this year out of leftover yardage from this dress).
I love when I can squeeze two projects out of one length of wool! I try to convince myself that the skirt cost nothing. Sure, I needed a zipper, and some lining, but the skirt was basically made from scraps, right?
And I will leave you with a few superfluous twirls – I dare you to be in a bad mood after spinning around in a full skirted dress or coat. Try it, you’ll like it!
