My Coat

Image
Coat is a garmentwhich Iwas afraid tosew.I thought thatI haven'tthe righttools for makingthe perfectcoat....industrialpress for example isa toolthat you can notreplacewith anythingelse. My first attempta few years agoconfirmedthis, althoughI thinkthat the fault wasonthe choice offabrics...wool fabricwassoft andrarelywoven, and the liningwas firmer..padded for extra warmth.
Well, this time Ichosebetter quality fabric with classic polyester lining andit turned outmuch better. I am satisfied.
