I've not made many things so far that have been this plain.
So I am proud of the shape, the size, the finish on the cuffs, collar, lapels. I didn't enjoy easing those sleeves but they really are quite good. I traced this pattern something I have never done before. I love the way when I turned the whole thing inside out at the end - I 'm sure there's smoke and mirrors involved- but it actually looked well, properly finished. I'm so glad I made it as I can see my dream of making my own cosy winter coat coming ever closer. I also love the pockets and as the instructions mention - I will be unpicking side seams to add pockets from now on on every dress - genius.
So it may just need a really nice brooch or button, or maybe the contrasting cuffs and /or lapels and collar. Maybe you have some ideas cos it really does need some help. Please let me know any suggestions in the comments below.
