Long denim coat
#149 Long Denim Coat from Burda WOF 4/2004

Untitled

So, last November (October?), I was going to make a coat. Winter was coming on, and I expected to be able to use a long coat. Well, it’s not really a coat … more like a long jacket. I was going to use that fabulous striped twill pictured above to make the long jean style coat in the image to the left.

But alas, I was overcome by the holidays and my brother and his family visiting from New Zealand. It’s February, and I’m still putting away xmas decorations and rearranging furniture that was impacted by the visit.

And, it is warming up. The cold, such as it is, doesn’t last long here. November, December, & January are months in which I do not wear a tank top and shorts to garden; that’s how I define cold. I gardened last week in shorts and a tank top. Now, granted a storm is headed our way, and hopefully, snow will fall in the mountains, and we’ll get many more storms because California is parched, but I’m more interested in making tank tops, short sleeved shirts, and skirts and dresses and maybe jackets, but not coats.

I had traced the pattern and fit it. The pattern pieces are currently pinned to Tina (aka my dress form), but I’ll be unbasting the pattern, carefully folding it, and packing it away … for next year? We’ll see.
