DIY GRAY WOOL BLEND MID-LENGTH DUSTER USING MIMI G SIMPLICITY 8177 PATTERN WITH ALTERATIONS

Hey everyone. Today’s blog post is the DIY mid-length duster made with a few alterations. I found this wool blend fabric at Jo-Ann fabric, which I love working with because of its weave firmness; its easy to manage, its stable, and smooth to sew into. I’m overly crazy about the feel/texture of the fabric and the color. This isn’t the first time using this pattern ….click on link http://kimandtonia.com/2018/05/diy-fye-red-full-length-vest/.  The actual pattern is a full length duster with side hidden pockets and a back bottom vent, which as you can see from the original version I switched it up a little bit and re-created it to make it my own. So the 3 alterations I made consisted of me eliminating the hidden side pockets and adding these faux-fur boxed side pockets, I shorten the duster and lastly I didn’t add the back bottom vent. Also the pants are DIY as well, click on link http://kimandtonia.com/2018/09/diy-pants-black-stretch-knit-with-faux-leather-butterick-pattern-6461/ This is yet another one of my favorite looks because it has a clean, sleek, stylish and professional look.

Be Blessed. I hope you all love this look as much I do and enjoyed the post.

XOXOXO….Ms. Kim Austin
