Making the Ingvild Coat

| 1 Comment


Ingvild by Melilot Patterns has been on my list for quite awhile.  I bought the wool at Colorado Fabrics weeks before we learned they were shutting down.  Yes, I should have put a dress on for the photos, but I didn't.



All of the Melilot Patterns that I have made have been very simple to construct.  This one was no different.  Although, this was ALOT of fabric, so I used quite a bit of strength at certain points to get it all under the machine.  My guess is that the coat weighs 5-8 lbs.  It's crazy heavy.  



I did get stuck when it was time to join the sleeves.  There are pictures in the pattern, but I could not replicate what was happening.  I did succeed, but I suggest having a fresh brain before starting this step.  Sheesh.  Then once I figured it out, I had one sleeve all twisted up.  SO, yeah, fresh brain not tired, stressed brain.


Here's what it should look like when done properly.


Ingvild is a reversible coat.  The lining in mine is also wool (of some sort) and cream colored.  I have not put the buttons on the cream side yet.



Both sides have their own pockets.  I chose to put red pockets on the darker side and brown pockets in the cream side.  They really don't show; they just peek out a little bit.




It was windy today.



Final thoughts?  Ingvlid was easy to put together.  With 2 layers of wool, it will be crazy warm, but also quite heavy.  I love the way it looks and the way it closes in the front.  I'm excited to get dressed up and wear it ... somewhere.



What am I reading you ask?  Right now I am reading Blackbird Broken by Keri Arthur.  I really enjoy her storytelling and her take on witches.  Currently, I'm thinking this might be what I use as inspiration for the February Bag of The Month.  This month is the Hope Handbag, and it sure looks like a bird could carry it in their beak if they had to!


The February Playlist is up and running as well.  Find it here


What do your think?  Fishbone today?  Sometimes I forget how ridiculously amazing they were.  I suppose they are around today, right?  I see Angelo every one in awhile, but do they play as a band now?




Accidentally i have come across this website and it was so nice to see the steps convalescent home pasadena to make the ingvild coat specified here. It looks really beautiful to see the lady in that coat. I am expecting more details about it and keep sharing the updates here.
