TBT: Black Coat McCall’s M5513


Hi All!

This Throwback Thursday, I have a slightly more recent project than last week’s TBT , but this was also a project made for me by my lovely mom 🙂

And it is this coat, made from McCall’s M5513 about 5 years ago:

I consider this my more ‘dressed up’ winter coat- since it is so nice over dresses and just for a really chic look 🙂

le back – I love the waist line on the back, so flattering!

le side, showing off those pleats and the bubble hem!

Mom made this out of black boiled wool, and she lined it with a lovely red, white & black plaid cotton, and red satin on the inside.

You can wear it with the collar up or down, I usually opt for up, but it is super cute down too.

And the satiny lining:

The boiled wool makes it really warm- which was nice because it was FREEZING and windy on the beach!

Always lots of sisterly love when taking photos:

 (I must not hit my sister over the head with a big stick)
And as you can tell from this photo Finn had just about enough of the pictures- he was ready for the walk! 

Here’s to my second Throwback Thursday- and this amazing coat that my mom made! My mom actually has a Pattern Review account (which I have convinced her to start using!) and she put a review of the coat up today! her first review 🙂

Hope you are having a nostalgic Thursday!
