My favorite color is pink!!! If you’ve viewed some of the garments that I’ve sewn you will see many have pink within them. Heck, the color scheme of this blog, even though it’s subtle, has pink. I think pink is just so feminine and pretty, especially soft blush pink.
Sooo….when winter introduces it’s harsh winds, icy chills, and it’s dreary dreariness, it’s great to rebel with warmth, cuteness, and pink! Thus, these sewing loves are filled with coats created with various shades of pink fabric.
This lady right here absolutely understands that there is no such thing as too much pink! She duplicated this same coat in another flush pink, as well as other various pastel colors such as purple and blue. I believe she replicated this great coat like 4 different times!!! She created the coats by combining 2 patterns.
She doesn’t have a blog, but, boi, how do I wish she did! Maybe, she might start one in the future! Hey, a girl can hope right! However, you can follow her instagram filled with all her wonderful creations.
There are so many things that she sews that I truly admire. Here she made another wool coat, this time with a matching hat. You should definitely check out her post to see what she has to say about sewing clothes in and out of season and why you shouldn’t always be limited by it.
And, if you are new to sewing, I highly suggest you follow her youtube channel were she has detailed instructional beginner sewing videos! And if you want you learn how to operate a baby lock she is about about to begin a tutorial series!
Sometimes our inspiration can come from others, Pinterest, or as in this case, accessories. Her desire to create a matching garment for her purse led her to create this beautiful boiled wool coat. You can’t notice it from this picture, but if you visit her blog you will notice the amount of detail that went into her pleated oversized collar. Her attention to details and the contour finishing of her buttons are simply impeccable. Lastly, her blog posts are so comprehensive and detailed that it’s inspired me to write better sewing pattern reviews!
When we venture out and challenge ourselves to try something different, we sometimes surprise ourselves with the results. In this particular case, your results are 2 stunning coats! Yes, she has two amazing hot pink winter coats that were very difficult to choose from. This one was chosen because I love, love the zipper and it was her first coat! View her blog to see this one plus the other coat that she made and her challenges regarding sewing a coat for the first time.
Okay, so this coat wasn’t necessarily sewn for winter weather, but I love the fuchsia color! But, in or out of season, it doesn’t take away from the craftsmanship of this garment, which is why it was included! She tried something new and self drafted her sleeves which was a very nice design element. As someone who is sewing the exact same pattern as I write, it was nice to see that hack and made me kinda wish I did that too.
On her blog she provides more details on her sleeve hack!
I love structured clothes as well as pink, and this coat has the best of both worlds along with the best buttons ever! It doesn’t matter if you prefer reading or watching, she provides a sewing review in both formats. Both her blog post and video are very detailed and great! She added this really neat idea to create a hanger loop on her coat which I thought was definitely a functional element that I would like to incorporate into my future coats. Such a thorough blog post! Definitely worth the read!
P.S. – you are loved!
