School Days Coat Sew-a-Long, More Pictures

So, after many hours of tracing, cutting, more cutting, sewing, note taking, photographing, editing photos, & writing blog posts, the sew along for the coat is finally complete!  I am so pleased with the final product and cannot say enough how much I enjoyed making it.  

School Days Coat


She has a few scarves that she will wear with it, one is this purchased blue one. 



Here we are together, yep, she's a toddler and it's completely okay to do this.



And I will do it as long as she allows me.



Vintage Garden Knits wrapped around our necks.  


Here is the coat is action. I am not certain that she will ever get to wear it again, you know, to preserve it's original condition…

  3. Jem, love the coat but missed the pattern source,could you share it again my grandson would look so cute in it I am thinking rain coat? maybe great oil cloth?
    I an joining you on the bag challenge, my first is getting done slower I have to hide it as it’s a gift for my oldest daughter. Her birthday comes in June so will have plenty or time to get done. I of course had to add pockets inside along with a couple of other things. But have stated the February bag anyway wonder if that is h0w I end up with so many 1/2 finished things.

  4. Finished my first coat today and I’m thrilled! Thanks for the guidance! I cut out the pieces for number two tonight…we’ll see how fast that one comes along when my I go back to work on Monday!

  5. I’m (finally) finishing coat number two – nearly a year after my comment above. Ha! It got put aside for, oh, roughly 11 months. BUT, I was hoping to use your pics again as a guide and there’s a message from Flickr saying they’re not available. I can get through the end with just the pattern, but your pictures sure were a nice addition for coat #1!
