Sewing With A Plan - what a concept

A wool melton double breasted coat. Looks very warm and cozy doesn't it. We all loved the sweep of this coat which reminded us of Anna Karina. Paula used some sew in magnetic snaps as the actual closure on this coat, as the buttons are purely decorative. The large snaps were found at Sawyer Brook, the wool Melton at and the lining at Sew True.
No doubt Paula will get some good use out of this coat, as we still have several months of winter left.

Ah! - The orange sherbet silk cami in all its glory. It does make one yearn for spring. Nice work Paula we will look forward to seeing you in it.

Here we have a few of Paula's "Sew with a Plan" items. All of these fabrics were ordered from Sawyer Brook. The Shirt is made from McCalls # 5522 and the fabric is a crisp cotton shirting with a creme and sage stripe. The skirt is made out of Tencel, which drapes so beautifully and is very comfortable for wearing. This skirt is a Williams Studio 2 pattern, and you can see another version of it under my recent projects made from a wool flannel. A very versatile pattern!

Great Work Paula!
