I’ve gone and done it again.
I’ve booked myself on another craftsy course. Yes, yes I know, I have not made the Bombshell dress yet, or the Couture Dress. We all know its not my fault right? I know I am quite lazy, but in this matter, I am ABSOLUTELY blameless.
Gertie has this new course:
As you can see from the poster above, I am already enrolled on the course yay!!!
I do not know when I will actually make this suit, after all, I am still to make the first two dresses. I am going to watch this class just to learn. I know I will learn so many new things from here that I will use on other projects, such as making bound buttonholes, which I have to make on a shirtdress using this vintage vogue designer pattern:
I will also be able to learn how to make welt pockets, which I intend to use on my trench coat which I will make using McCalls 5525:
The trench coat I am currently lusting after is this Burberry Blanket stitch trench coat.
It costs a mighty £1,795. ahem….
I have already ordered some beige stretch cotton sateen and fuchsia china silk lining from fabric.com, and as we speak, said fabric package is slowly but surely wending its way to yours truly. Exciting stuff. With shipping, it all came down to $54.79 (£35). Not bad aye?
Is anyone else thinking of making a trench coat this year? Better still, has anyone made one, or is currently making one? Any word of advice?
