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!
