A few months ago MinervaCrafts and Quadrille offered me an opportunity to review a sewing book that would be released in November. I eagerly signed up along with 4 other bloggers to make something from the book, write a review and of course take pictures.
As soon as I received the book I was immediately taken by at least 6 patterns so selecting what to make for the MinervaCrafts blog was challenging! In the end, I used the logic of sewing for the weather I am in right now. Plus the coat pattern is called Halla kinda loosely alliterates with Hila. Hila’s Halla sounded fun. Using bright colourful boiled wool for the pattern meant my fate was sealed :-).
If you’d like to read my 800 word review of the book then please click on the link here: Hila’s Halla Coat which will take you to the post. You can check out the other makes from the book posted by the bloggers over there.
I love (lurve) the colours of the boiled wool! I have my eye on the mustards and the emerald green….
Have you also got Breaking the Pattern; A Modern Way to Sew?
Thanks so much for stopping by! Until next time Happy Sewing!
Peace and love,
NB: Quadrille Publishing provided the book. Minervacrafts provided the materials. I did all the hard work of tracing, sewing, taking pictures and writing up a post. So yeah – all opinions are 100% my own. I was under zero obligation to proceed with the review if I didn’t want to.
