We talk about how to turn something old into something new today. Do you remember that I wasn’t utterly satisfied with my first version of Nora? Well, as promised, I ripped it apart and sew a new one. I couldn’t be happier I did so!
what is it?
last week, I introducedNora, a super cute coat from Coralie Bijasson. I told you that my choice for the main fabric wasn’t great and I regretted it. Therefore, I decided to simply ripped it off and sew it again with a better one.
To know more about this pattern, please refer to of my previous article. Anyway, you can easily imagine that as I spent almost the same amount of time to unsew it and sew it again, I must like the pattern.
what is it made of?
Since I was so disappointed with my first version, I wanted to ensure the second go will be perfect. I chose a wool fabric from Pretty Mercerie (50% wool and 50% viscose). The quality is absolutely awesome. The black color is deep and shines a bit. It was super easy to sew, even the buttonholes which I always fear a bit.
It is warm and cosy, perfect for a winter coat.
I have used a thin fusing to interface the fronts of the coat as well as the facing bits.
which size it is?
Always the same: 36 to 38.
is it modified?
I have put the pockets 3cm above the initial position. It is better that way.
are you happy with it?
I am delighted! I was worth all the time I spent working on it. It is really how I see sewing, hard work but great achievements! If you’re not fully happy with a garment, make it again but better this time.
will you make it again?
I might make a spring version of it.
