Where I live it gets cold enough to need a jacket, but probably not enough to own as many as I do. Yet, I can't seem to say "No" to them. That is what I always want to buy and, much to often, to sew.
I made this coat a few years ago, out of, if you can believe it, painter's drop cloths.
They are ridiculously cheap for the yardage, and I happen to like the slightly nubby, inconsistent texture of this inexpensive fabric.
This jacket was sewn last winter. Some might find this orange obnoxious, as people have told me, but I don't care, I love it.
You might recognize the lining. It was made from a duvet cover from Ikea.
I am excited to wear these again, and most likely, make a few more.
