We are back to feature another beautiful red Spearmint by Cation Designs!
Does this picture remind you of anyone famous? I’m not telling! Cation Designs shares some coat inspiration with you over on her blog post…click over for the big reveal!
The coat looks fantastic whether it is worn open or closed!
She also talks about the giant pockets being a little too big for her and suggests a fix! It is a great idea and an easy fix if you prefer the pockets slightly smaller.
Cation Designs used hair canvas interfacing in her collar as recommended by the pattern and pressed it into shape and it looks wonderful with the wool fabric. The key to the collar is to use wool and hair canvas…it may seem like it will be too thick but trust us, it produces the best results! Even with melton wool!
The best part? I got to see this coat in person! Cindy wore it to the San Francisco meet up a couple weeks ago! And Seamstress Erin wore her Gunmetal! Leila also had on her Spearmint….it was a Lolita Patterns party!
I had such a great time at the meetup and met some wonderful ladies and I can’t wait to go back and do it again!
See you there!
