I’d love to go to Brooklyn some day. In the meantime I’m loving my Brooklyn coat. A new pattern from Tessuti. Like the Sydney jacket it uses a fabric that doesn’t fray, like a boiled wool, though ponti would work in a climate warmer than canberra.
This is Brooklyn in a cold damp Melbourne and it performed well.
I do rather like the colour against the wet Melbourne evening and the grey Melboune day. And the pockets on the bum, mmmm, these were very much a last minute addition but I do like them after all, a bit different, interesting, noice ☺
With no seams or edges to finish the coat was a quick sew, again like the Sydney jacket. Also I got to try one on in Addicted to Fabric, so I knew the small/medium would be a good fit. Sewing is much easier when you know it will fit!
This boiled wool has a high proportion of rayon in it, make it very soft, nice to wear but it also stretches quite a lot, something to be aware of when sewing it and nothing a good wash won’t fix, after a few wears.
Here’s Brooklyn having another outing in Melboune, with my new silk satin infinity scarf. How have I taken so long to find infinity scarves? Now I’m want them all using all the scraps.
Have you tried the Brooklyn coat?
