The lovely Kestrel by Clever Charlotte.
My absolute favourite coat pattern.
This will probably be the last time I make it for Lidia.
As this is the size 8, the largest size, with a wee bit of length at the sleeves.

Liddy's colour de jour.
This cloth was perfect for this pattern. It gathered and draped so well.
As sweet Liddy is very sensitive to itches, I lined the back of the scarf with bemsilk.
Lidia chose some large wooden buttons and aqua thread to sew them in place.
So that I could change them in the future (if Matilda wishes) I used sew in poppers.
Liddy selected some Tula Pink Parisville cotton for the main lining and we went with bemsilk for the sleeves to facilitate easy dressing.
A pop of fun on the inside.
Would you like to sew one? I have a full tute here
But now I sew the collar like this
Mmmm, perhaps Tildy needs a new one too.....
