Raindrop Coat

I have been falling behind on posting your creations and adding them to the gallery, but there have been a ton of good ones in the blogs and Flickr group lately!

One of the standouts was this Spring coat from Sunni, made from Lady Grey. Check out her blog post on her Raindrop coat for more!

Thanks for letting me share it, Sunni!

I love this version! Such a flattering colour and cut. Sunni, you did a fantastic job. In fact your post inspired me to make a version of my own, I’ll be cutting it out as soon as the pattern arrives. Gorgeous!

Oh goodness! Thank you Sarai! Need I say, this pattern is superb! Doesn’t everyone need a newly sewn Spring coat?

I’m also a HUGE fan of your version of this coat, and you ought to have it on your conscience that you started an obsession for me. I think I’ll lengthen the sleeves and put on a fur collar though. :)
