While in Florida, I did manage to sew the warmer for my red Burberry trench coat. While I still plan to wear the blue vintage coat for the outdoor ceremony tomorrow, there is a 40 percent chance of rain. Boo! The warmer still needs binding along the edges. I made the raglan sleeves a bit of a cap style to reduce bulk in the sleeves.
This would be perfect for the weather tomorrow. Except, as you can see, it’s not installed yet. I originally planned to make a button out warmer, like a ‘real’ Burberry trench. But, I’m going to have to go the London Fog (originally made here in Baltimore, BTW) route and make it a zip out. I bought the zipper in NYC last October. I’m not sure yet how I’m going to sew it together. I haven’t inserted a ‘regular’ zipper in dog years.
In other news, Christmas is here! I seem to want to decorate every other year.
My tree is up. Did I tell you I bought my tree at Rite Aid the day after Christmas for like $20?
And for the first time I’m doing some draping and lights between my dining and living room.
I have lights outside, but forgot to take a photo. But, you know I will 🙂
