Grandma’s Wool Coat

No sewing again, but it wasn’t raining, so out to clean up flower beds it was.  Now just the garden to do.  Here are photos of the wool coat that was my grandmothers, I think it was from the 1950’s, not sure though.   It has also been hanging in Mom and Dad’s basement for about 13 years or so.   The fabric is wool, but has a bit of a “hairy” nap to it, a scarf around the neck would be a requirement, as it’s very itchy fabric!

Full view, it’s a basic straight cut with a round collar.

I think I have an idea on what to do with the fur coat – shorten it, and use the  bottom to make it a bit wider to fit me, and use the rest to make hats, especially one for my mom.  I’ll use the monogram bit of lining in her hat.

I still need to take some photos of the Barbie clothes that Mom made when I was a kid, if  I don’t get any sewing done (again) this week, that will be the next subject.
