My new classic coat!

It’s getting colder here in Scandinavia so it was in order to start sewing seasonal appropriate clothes.  Perfect timing to join in on testing the newest pattern from Wardrobe by me, the classic coat.

This was a little challenging to sew but very fun and rewarding.  I took my time, read the instructions over and over and my iron became my best friend.

The pattern is designed for a wool or a wool blend coat fabric, it is fully lined and you can choose to make either welt or patch pockets.  I specially loved the shapes of the interfacing pieces!  If you want to know what I’m talking about you just have to buy the pattern haha!

The fabric I used is a wool blend I bought at Stoff og Stil.  I can’t find it in the online shop so maybe it’s sold out.  For the lining I used this one also from Stoff og Stil.  It’s just a thin viscose since I’m terrified of using the slippery stuff usually used in lining.  I have used that polyester acetate once and it was not fun!

I wouldn’t choose this as my debut sewing project but it actually isn’t that hard to sew, so if you have a few projects under your belt you can make this coat.  Just take your time, use your iron and ask questions in the Wardrobe by me Facebook group.

Lets go into this winter in style!

I'm a mom to four fantastic kids, three boys and a girl. To teenagers and to toddlers so never a dull moment in our household :) We are from Iceland but have been living in Norway since 2001. I have a newfound passion for sewing. My hubby travels a lot for work and I needed something to do at night when the little ones are a sleep because suddenly my teenage boys would rather hang with their friends or play on their pc's than be with me - why is beyond my imagination :) Thanks to Pinterest I found some amazing sewing bloggers, whom I've been stalking, and realized that I could dig out my sewing machine and start sewing. Now it's all I think about. I've been hoarding pdf patterns and learning from all the amazing tutorials that are out there. I've decided to try out this blogging thing as well to document my sewing journey. We'll see how it goes! Thanks for stopping by, I would love it if you would leave me a comment! XOXO Dagbjört
