This one is a relic, compared to all the other stuff I made.
Back in highschool in the 4th year ('07-'08), we had textile classes and one year the assignment was to make a piece of clothing out of a circle of fabric. Everyone decided to make either a skirt or a dress, I decided, "Pfsh, wussies. I'm gonna make a coat!". BEST idea in my highschool history <3
This is basically just one big circle of a heavy, black, woolen fabric of which I forgot the diameter. My guess it's somewhere around 1.60 meters. And aside from the armholes, I don't think I cut out anything. I stitched a lot but I didn't cut anything out.
Together with my mom, I completely modelled it directly on my body. I actually think I got a 9 or a 9.5 on it (they grade from 1, which is really bad but barely happens- the lowest you mostly get is a 4, to 10- which barely happens as well xD ), only because I was a tad late with handing it in. :')
Looking back on it now, it was a really interesting experience, especially because back then, I didn't know the first thing about sewing techniques. Some parts didn't come out as nicely as I would've wanted them to be (for example, the armholes around the wrists are a bit too tight to be comfortable) and I had to use three extra push-buttons to keep the front in place. But overall, this is my little treasure. <3
I'd love, LOVE to get the opportunity to do something like this again once. With the bit of experience I have now, I must actually be able to make it decently wearable!
