Yes, I made myself another coat. Apparently, the row of coats in my closet are not enough. This one in a black and brown wool, with a big round collar and welt pockets.
Simplicity 5103 from 1964.
I put one snap button on the inside of the collar to keep it in place.
Thick insulating lining for that cold downtown wind.
Yes! Welt pockets!
And it was all created on my new sewing machine, Ms. Babylock Grace.
