This sew was both a pattern bust and a fabric stash bust!
pattern: Oliver + S Secret Agent Trench Coat
fabric: mustard yellow twill and a floral stretch poplin
Like all Oliver + S patterns, it's a good one. It's a bit more time consuming than some if you make your own bias binding for the seams (which I did--can't believe I didn't get a picture of the inside!).
I sewed this up over a few weeks as my days of being a stay-at-home-mom are over. I recently started working at a retail store while the kids are in school. Right now it's seasonal but I'm hoping they will keep me on after the holidays...even if it does cut into my sewing/blogging time.;)
My only problem was picking a contrast fabric since I didn't have quite enough of the yellow twill. The O+S forum (it's all new if you haven't been there recently) came to the rescue and the consensus was to go with a print that I had on hand. Good call ladies! Choosing buttons was another dilemma so I sought the opinion of those on IG and Flickr. Orange was the overwhelming choice and MG loves them!
See you later, Alligator!
