Marley's New Coat

I bought the fabric for this almost ten years ago. It is a heavy weight silk and I LOVE the color. It has been sitting in my fabric drawer just waiting for me to decide what to do with it. Marley needed a coat and we didn't have any extra cash laying around so inspiration struck and I decided to give it a shot. I had never before sewn anything so heavy and bulky. It's not perfect but I am pleasantly surprised at well it turned out.



On a side note....can you believe how grown up my little Marley Mae is getting? Her eleventh birthday is right around the corner. That doesn't make me old, does it?
