I’m almost finished with a new coat for Leah. She chose a coat pattern from Lekala online pattern company. It’s made from 18 whale corduroy fabric from Fabric.com and the lining is from the local thrift. This is the second weekend dedicated to this cute little item. Leah says it has a bit of a steam punk look with the ruffles in the back. The hardest part is figuring out the directions. They are translated from Russian to English and listed in steps without pictures. Two things that gave me the most trouble were the instructions for the pockets and attaching the lining to the coat. I finally just had to just figure it out the best I could. Here are a few pictures of the coat so far. I still need to do the hem on the sleeves and bottom, do the buttonholes and buttons.
