In need of some tender loving care

This is my winter coat. I love this coat. I got it in the sale from Coast in December 2011 after eyeing it up for months. 

In need of TLC coat front
Recently I haven’t enjoyed wearing it so much. This is why. 

In need of TLC inside lining
Every time I pull it on something else rips. The lining is ruined around the sleeves and in some places, it is just hanging on. There is a rip at the waistline, probably caused by my belts. Even my patch needs re-patching.

The outer shell of the coat is far to good to give away or throw out so I have decided to use some of my week off work to replace it. I’ll share how I get on at the weekend. 

In the meantime, will you be curled up on the sofa with a culpa watching the Great British Sewing Bee? I’m almost in place!


  1. Your coat is lovely, I can see why you like it. It's very pleasing how the checks match on the front; good luck with fixing the lining. I watched The Sewing Bee, and thought it was great. It's so exciting to have sewing on tv!

    1. I agree! I was amazed at the standard given the time allowances. I can't wait for next week.

  2. Will you be giving it a fabulous hidden lining? It is a lovely classic coat.

    1. Sadly not this time. I did play around with the idea for a while but I love the simplicity of the lining. I just hope it looks as good with less of a sheen.
