The Vivienne Westwood Riding Hood

I have made Butterick 9214 again.
I didn’t intend to, but I made a coat muslin with some cheap op-shop tartan that looked pretty good and I couldn’t bear to throw it away so I lined it and made a reversible coat with it.

I still have a bit of work on it, but as soon as September rolls around, I’ll be ready!

  • I like that midriff tie. It's a very nice detail. You know, I'd never have considered making that pattern up as outerwear. Very clever! Wouldn't that pattern make a gorgeous evening coat?
