But I have!!! I've made a fully reversible spring coat (yes, I realise I'm completely jumping the gun here) for Hayley. I didn't have a pattern, I had to cobble together a pyjama pattern - yes pyjamas! - and some common sense, but it worked. There are a couple of things I'll do differently next time, like not make the collar quite so stiff, but it's a learning process. I'm so pleased with it, as is Hayley, though she insists she'll only ever wear it with the spotty side showing!
No buttons yet, I need to go and buy some tomorrow. I'm going to use the cover buttons for it. I have some funky turquoise and brown fabric that will work beautifully with the cord and will use the purple fabric on the spotty side.
It'll need a wash to soften it up and make the ironing a bit easier, as well as flatten the seams a little, but I can overlook all that for now! Can you tell I'm excited about this?!
