A Heart-Felt Coat Gallery-
I am inspired and want to share some of the Heart-Felt Coats I have seen in the past month.
Each designer has taken their interpretation of my Heart-Felt Coat Pattern in very different directions, which gives us all some fun directions, materials and combinations to explore in our own sewing.
She started with denim, then distressed it with bleach. The raw edges are accentuated by washing after the garment was sewn. Don't be afraid of the raw edges...they can be trimmed and brushed to keep looking good. This garment is a great lighter weight layer and will carry her into the warmer weather too.

silver fabric paint, elastic loops and some vintage buttons makes this a memorable coat to wear for years to come.

Thank you for sharing your very creative Heart-Felt Coats with all of us!
Enjoy your winter sewing, Diane
