Me-Made-May 2019: New Look 6301 and LoriAnne Patterns
It was a lovely Michigan Spring Day yesterday, perfect for my favorite wrap dress: New Look 6301, and my Walking Coat by LoriAnne Patterns.
This is a lovely pattern from New Look, and the only adjustment I made ( I think.....I made this a couple of years ago!) was a FBA. I used a very pretty floral ITY from JoAnn Fabrics which was a perfect match for the pattern.
I love yellow, and and I love my yellow Spring coat! This too was made a couple of years ago after I purchased the pattern at a Sewing Expo weekend in Novi, MI. This large weave, wool fabric was another estate sale purchase. Lining it with a striped silky poly worked well, and I eliminated any closures as both a practical (thicker fabric!) and style choice.
There is usually a small window of opportunity to wear this coat in our Midwestern Spring before the weather really warms up, but I enjoy wearing it every time!
