Denim is a trend that has and will always be around. So when I spotted this denim fabric at Unique, I scooped it up so fast. Denim fabric usually sells for $9.99 or more a yard, but I got about 2 1/2 yards for only $5.99. My first thought was to make denim culottes, but I wanted to make something that I could wear often. I decided to make a coat.
Traced my favorite dress again.
Before cutting, I folded it in half, so both sides are the same.
Pinned and sewed the seams.
Marked and cut the neckline.
I ended up with two curved lines, which will be lapels,
then cut down the middle of only one side.
The denim was a little plain, so I turned up the sleeve, ironed and sewed.
Ironed and sewed all the hems.
Used left over fabric and made a belt.
