the domestic sphere

my dalliances with all things domestic


just in time for spring

A new spring coat for Eleanor. Reversible, even. A confession though: I started this coat a long time ago. Such a long time ago that it was meant to fit Zoe and there was a smaller one cut out for a much smaller Eleanor. This one was very nearly done. It just needed the sleeves and bottom sewn closed and the buttons and buttonholes. And there it sat, for, three years. But now it's done, just in time for Spring. It's from a commercially available pattern (McCall's I recall), but wasn't lined/reversible.

I don't think it shows in the photo, but the more colorful side has apple buttons. Silver buttons on the green side, per Miss E's request.
