Today I am back to kick off this month's Flip pattern - the Trendy Unisex Coat by Dear My Kids.
I really love Pea Coats, they are stylish, have clean lines, and will always be a classic. I kept my version true to the pattern aside from the arm bands, while I love the detail - I just wanted to let the fabric sing.
This amazing cord is from Mabel Madison - my daughter LOVES it, the vibrant colors, the softness, what's not to love!!! I lined the coat with warm black fleece so that this coat will work perfectly for fall and spring. I'm dreaming up a winter version with wool, thinsulate, and flannel or Sherpa as a lining.
If you are looking for an easy sew - this pattern is perfect. It is just 4 pattern pieces and button holes, easy peasy. Since it is a simple design, it lends itself to amazing flips; and I can't wait to see what all the contestants have in store this week! I'm hoping to see some pockets.....I want to add pockets to a future one I make ;o)
