Snowy Sunday

I finished my winter coat just in time. Those in the UK will know that we had a lot of snow on Saturday night! We took these pictures on Sunday morning, before getting down to clearing the paths and digging the car out of the snow.

It’s Vogue 1276, a Today’s Fit pattern. I was instantly attracted to it by the dramatic collar.

Which handily turns into a hood.

I lined it in a heavy acetate-viscose satin from The Lining Company. I like the bright yellow against the grey, although most of the time it’s not visible. The fashion fabric is a grey boiled wool-poly blend from Stone Fabrics.

I really really like this style. Good for striking dramatic poses. Nice roomy pockets. And it keeps my ears warm.
