Pepernoot Stitching

by Sadie Fox Studio in


Our Pepernoot sew-a-long team started off by making pockets. It really is exciting to see the fabric and zipper choices in action. After that the coats really started to come together quickly. I love the shape of the back yoke seam. It is a lovely detail.

I have fallen in love with the fabric I purchased for my Pepernoot and the bright blue lining is going to be just the right pop of color. Lucky for me the recent snow storm in Denver will allow me the chance to get some good use out of my new super cute coat! 

The luscious fabric my friend, & student, Norma picked out for her coat is a classic muted sage green wool. She is adding a super fun surprise of gold piping, gold zippers and hot pink lining! I can't wait to see her in it!

Claudia, of Sew You Studio, picked out an unexpected and crazy cute fabric combo for her coat! I can see this coat hanging in the window of a super hip boutique. I am going to have coat envy for sure!

This Waffle pattern is super easy to follow and I absolutely love the visual diagrams for each step of the process. The layered pattern printing is great and I love that I can print off just my size. I am looking forward to stitching up one of their other patterns very soon!
