Well, as I already said before I am attending "The Plain Pattern Project" challenge with this vintage pattern...


For thefirst dressI picked up thefabric thathasbeen leftin boxwith the remnants for years...blue/gray satin.




Basically....I don't like to wear satin,but thedressdoes not looktoograndin combinationwithlong-sleeved T-shirtand cardigan. 
btw....my hair is a mess...I don't know what to do with it.

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.
