Coatigans (til salg)

Selvom jeg efterhånden har syet nogle stykker, er jeg på ingen måde coatigan mættet. 2 styks blev produceret forleden - og flere er på vej.

Den vamsede grå oversize coatigan i smuk uldstrik er til salg og kan erhverves for den nette sum af DKK 450 + porto. Det er en str L.


Fall. There you are again. Too soon if you ask me. I'm absolutely not done with summer.

Honestly I'm not that fond of fall - or winter for that matter. I've said it before and you'll hear it again - I'm really not into cold weather!

What I do like about fall. The colors, my birthday, coatigans and Linden sweatshirts! Yup. In less that a month I'll be 40. Freakin' forty. So I'm sewing and sewing and sewing in a vague attempt to repress that fact! Just kidding. No I'm not. Forty. I remember when I was 17 and my mum was 40 years OLD. 

Well, let's just agree that the forties are the new thirties. Forty and fabulous. My new mantra. I'll even ask force my kids to greet my with that phrase every morning. 

Back to the creative business. One can never have to many coatigans. Especially not when one turns 40. I'm not that good at repressing, huh. I've made several of these during the last couple of years but that doesn't stop me from making more. And more. And more. Same thing with the Linden sweatshirts. I have 5 already - but need at least 5 more. At least. 

Today is all about the coatigans, though. Seriously, they are so easy to make that I made two last sunday in only a few hours. 

This time my starting point was a pattern from Danish sewing magazine Alt Om Håndarbejde Symagasin 09/2015. I love the dropped shoulders on this pattern. I only made minor alterations; rounded the front and added patch pockets.

The fabric is from Stofdepotet.dk

The gray wool knit is unfortunately sold out - but you can still grab the 'fall green' right here. I know that it's described as mustard yellow, but I find it more green than yellow.

Two down - 40 to go ;-)

  1. The big birthday is looking very good on you! Gorgeous, totally with you on the coatigans!

  2. The fabric choice makes them look so different!

  3. love them! that fluffy fabric looks awesome, and really warm too, wish i can find something similar in stores here

  4. So do you put a facing on them or line them or just bind the edges? Curious because I'm loving them and would love to try.

    1. No facing nor binding on these two. Raw edges all the way :-)

  5. Hi I'm really struggling to find this pattern on the site can you help ? Love the shape of this

    1. You can't find it on the site - it's from their magazine.
