Do you know what I love most about blogs and social media?  When you link to a link from a link and end up someplace wonderful.  As I searched for fall sewing patterns and tutorials this morning, I was brought to the Caila Made blog in just this way.  Then I happened upon the most adorable coat by Gail of Probably Actually and I just have to pass it along to you.  It’s made from the School Days Coat Pattern from Oliver + S.  While I like the photos of the coat on the Oliver + S site, I LOVE the coat that Gail made.

This is one of the reasons that I’m so driven to link you to great inspiration from the very talented sewing community.  I don’t know about you, but a little fabric eye candy is all it takes to get me motivated to spend some time with my machine!  Though this one may be way out of my league!

    I’m so glad you found my blog, and Gail’s beautiful coat! It truly is amazing. I’d love to sew a coat someday, although we live in such a warm climate it wouldn’t get any use. Maybe someday! :)

    I haven’t made a coat per say, but I have made fleece jackets. I guess that is close enough.
