DIY Blanket Coat

My belly is growing by the day as baby boy continues to fatten up. My clothes are fitting differently, some impossible to slip on and others taking on a new shape- quite literally! I’ve been relying on leggings & tunics/minidresses these days but outerwear has been slightly more tricky. Another week and I’ll be busting out of my winter coat which I’m hoping to rectify with a Kokoala coat insert. In the mean time, I had created this lovely blanket coat for October in Montréal.  I was looking for a fun, inexpensive & simple sewing solution for the in-between October weather. I came across the website of the Renegade Seamstress, a like-minded upcycler, and found her fantastic DIY Wool Blanket Coat tutorial. I used a pretty couch throw, an old leather belt and less than an hour later, voilà– my cozy & comfy blanket coat!
