"Pure and Simple Coat"   Cutting Line Designs

 I have wanted to make this unlined casual jacket for a while, but to find three linens that "worked" has taken time.   I played with so  many different colour and weight combo ,   before deciding on the blues.   I was unsure how to run the colours and posted a photo on  the Louise Cutting thread at Artisan Square     Louise  responded in about 2 minutes  (she must have busy)  to go from light to dark.   It was cut out and  completed it at  my first sewing retreat.  Constantly changing the thread was a bit of a nightmare,  but I  managed and only unpicked a little.

As with all her patterns the instructions were detailed,  which makes sewing so much more enjoyable.  I love the designer tips and how to avoid "the loving hands at home look".   Cutting Line Design patterns have become a favourite.

The slim blue pants are  Burda148  from 12/2012 magazine.   Straight leg with vents and side zip.

Easy fitting casual coloured blocked coat  from three shades of blue linen,  worn with slim Burda pants.
