Very exciting day today! I finally finished my Sewaholic Robson Coat.
I purchased the fabric in March last year on a trip to Seattle, at a fabric store called Nancy's Sewing Basket. Instead of souvenirs I like to bring home some fabric or yarn from a trip!
It is a light weight twill type fabric in dove grey. I added a black and white contrast fabric for the tabs, belt and under the storm flaps.
It wasn't a difficult sew, it is just that I got side tracked on other projects. But I made a determined effort to get this UFO finished before I started on anything else.

Even though it is still cold here in Ontario, it was a beautiful day with a clear blue sky. Great for the photos!
I used a canary yellow bias binding for all the seams and really like how the inside of my coat looks.

I love my new Trench Coat!
