Dandelion Coat Completed!

Woo hoo! Got this little coat completed today. The last step of buttonholes took me for a ride...... I had forgotten about working on bulky, textured fabric. Thank God the buttons hide my button holes. I had to do them manually. My auto buttonholes were beautiful on thinner fabric. On the boucle it kept catching over and over..... well it is over for now! I loved putting the fabrics together, embroidering the dandelions, sewing it all together for a finished coat! I hadn't sewn full size clothing in some time. Now I am onto 'Pixie Pants' from the same designer. I'll keep you posted!

Dandelion Coat

This week I have been sewing the Dandelion Coat from Big Little for my Great Niece Pele. So nice to sew again although I did have an adjustment day to get my sewing machine and serger working in good order (which included sprucing up my skills again!). So nice to work with textured boucle and wool embroidery floss! I will be sure to post the finished coat. I hope you check out the Big Little Tales blog spot. She has a lovely shop on Etsy for her patterns.
