Heart Strings Post - The Coat that Mama Made

I saw this post over at the Sew Chic Blog and it reminded me of this coat:



This is a red corduroy coat my mother made for my daughter when she was about five years old. It has a soft feminine lining and fold up cuffs on the sleeves. My mother did a professional job on this project. I loved this coat when my daughter was small and have kept it all these years. Its one of those things you keep forever. I might even have a granddaughter to wear it some day.




Unfortunately, I couldn't lay my hands on a picture of my daughter wearing the coat. I'm not sure if we have one, but if I find one, I'll post it.

I have a couple of other items my mother made for my children and myself that I plan to post at a later date.

She is so good at that stuff. I remember that coat too!

The coat your mother made reminds me so much of another Ottobre coat--not the one I made, but the one in the most recent issue.

I love the red corduroy of your coat, and the lining is so very pretty. You are right about it being something to keep forever and pass down to your children and grandchildren....

That is so pretty. I would have saved it too.

I'm so sentimental that I saved cut off jeans that my boys wore. They are packed up in the attic somewhere..LOL

It is such a beautiful coat. I see where you get your sewing talent from.

What a beautiful coat. Maybe if Blue Sky has a little girl one day, her little girl can wear the coat too. I love it!
