🙂 A recent photo and little Instagram review from Anne D. who made herself a beautiful coat!

Endelig har jeg taget billeder af den helt færdige frakke, som jeg syede for nogle uger siden efter mønster fra @veravenus Det var et virkelig spændende projekt og overraskende nemt☺️ Troede at jeg ville være beskæftiget i flere måneder, men det tog kun lige halvanden uge at sy den. Jeg fik brugt min nye symaskine til de simple syninger – jeg tror ikke, at det var gået helt så glat med den gamle maskine. Men det meste af syningen skete i hånden, når man tæller alt arbejdet i formgivning med hestehårslærred (eller hvad det nu hedder på dansk🙈), og alt hvad det indebærer, med. Knaphuller, syet i hånden, foer syet i frakken på den gammeldags måde, and all that jazz.. 😊 Har stadig hård hud på fingerspidserne af det😄 Men nu har jeg en vinterfrakke, som jeg glæææææder mig til at gå med og som jeg er ret forelsket i (især læggene bagpå😍) #veravenus #pleatbackcoat #tailoring #canoneactuallybeinlovewithacoat #sewsewsew I've finally taken photographs of the completed coat that I made a few weeks ago from a pattern by @veravenus It was a really intriguing project and surprisingly easy☺️ I thought I would be a few months going at it, but it only took a week and a half to sew it. I got to use my new sewing machine for the simple things – I don't think it would have been quite as smooth sailing with my old machine. But most of the sewing was done by hand, when you count in all the shaping done using hair canvas and all that comes with it. Tailored buttonholes, lining sewn in the old fashioned way and all that jazz😊 I still have callouses on my fingertips from it😄 But now I have a coat that I'm soooo excited to wear and which I'm quite in love with (especially the back pleats😍)
