Cissie's coatdress will be perfect for many spring seasons to come. And yes, Cissie, I would definitely say demure! Thanks, Cissie!
This linen was a dream to work with. Of course, being linen, it will wrinkle, but not nearly as badly as some. It is lined with Bemburg rayon and the collar is made from a scrap of birdseye pique in my stash (Sew Much Fabric now has this pique in stock). The pattern features bound buttonholes, darts in the bodice front and back, flaps, an a-line skirt and a detachable collar. I love the lines of this coat dress and feel quite lady-like in this take on a 1967 Simplicity pattern! Dare I say "demure"??
