Heidi and Finn Chic Cocktail Swing Coat Test

Wow! That's what I have to say about this jacket!!!  It is adorable. Yes, once again and can I say quite excitedly I had the opportunity to test another Heidi & Finn pattern.  I saw the post that a pattern test would be coming soon for this jacket and I immediately changed the settings on my phone to notification ON so that I would not miss out on the opportunity to test.  Hooray, and it paid off because here I am again showing you photos of one of my new favorite patterns.  
I sewed this one up in red velvet.  The lining is flannel.  Can I tell you that velvet must be the most difficult fabric to sew EVER!  It slipped and slid everywhere.  I read that you should maybe hand stitch before actually machine stitching.  I was not up to that so I just really went slow.

Some pretty little pintucks

Ahh, I am a few hours late on posting this.  Yay, I got to test another Heidi & Finn pattern!!!  The pattern was just released this morning and oh isn't it darling!  I can promise I will be making a few of these every season for Mila.  It is so sweet and simple.  The pattern is great with solid fabrics and just as great for showing off the cuteness of some of those printed fabrics.  I can't wait to try linen with this pattern. Here is a link to purchase the pattern for yourself : )
