#V1467SewAlong on the House of Pinheiro

Congratulations on making it to Friday! Yay! The weekend and lots of sewing lies ahead.

But first, let’s check in on the V1467 Pea Coat Sew Along. This week through Sunday co-host Rachel is walking us through steps 9-29 and 35-37; click here. Next week Meg Carter will be back on this blog with steps 30-34 and 38-54. How is everyone doing with their pea coats?

Happy 75th birthday to John Lennon. We found this mid-1960’s Butterick pattern in the archives a few weeks ago and thought it was perfect to share today.
