shearling coat roundup

I promise that I'm not always going to write about things I miss. I do miss my sewing machine though! I am saving up to buy a Bernina 330 but, until then I have to wait for my mom to bring my old sewing machine from the USA over to Europe. 

I love how cozy and classy these shearling coats look. A real shearling coat will probably run you $500. And to make one you would need a really sturdy machine. Which means you are probably going to find an affordable one made out of polyester. I do whatever I can to not wear polyester. My rule is... if it will melt to your skin in a fire... it's no good. I do have to make some exceptions though. Like for bathing suits, active wear and velvet. So here's the plan, I found some really beautiful and soft organic cotton faux shearling from Purl Soho, and I'm going to sew one up using the Sapporo Coat pattern from Papercut Patterns. I can't wait to bundle myself up in it.
