Another sewing post! We’re keeping the momentum going!

This time it’s Dave who has a finished object to share. He’s made himself a Colette Albion coat, which we (I) discovered after Laura and her husband made a lovely checked version (link is in German). Unlike Laura, I did not help Dave one bit, he’s the person with the sewing skillz (sorry, I can never resist that z) in our household.
So what can I say about it? This was really practice version for the real thing which will be made from uber-splurgy Harris Tweed he’s bought himself with his birthday money (you can see him posing with it on instagram).

This here is the jacket version (the tweed will be a coat), it’s unlined and made from very fray-ey upholstery cotton from ikea. All the seams are beautifully finished with handsewn bias binding – with I am really appreciating as I am in the process of handsewing the bias binding on a Sorbetto and am making a right mess of it. And look at how all the horizontal stripes match up, watching sewing bee has been good for something!

    Da kann ich nur sagen: Nicht schlecht, Herr Specht! Und wenn das “nur” die Generalprobe war … ich bin gespannt auf den “richtigen” Mantel!
    Liebe Grüße, Naomi

    (P.S.: Den Sorbetto-Schnitt hatte ich mir neulich auch mal angeguckt und dann zwei Tage später auf Instagram gesehen, dass du so eins genäht hast. Wie fandest du denn den Schnitt, taugt der was?)
