As many of you are aware, last year I spent a year buying no new clothes. I did pretty well and have only bought footwear since (a pair of boots for me and shoes for the kids).
The weather here has been changeable recently and so I needed something that was lighter than a coat but thicker than a cardigan.
I have been following The Woolly Pedlar on twitter for a while now and I love her creations. Not just because they are a great way to use textile waste but they are really unusual and I just love them.
At the time that I messaged her she didn’t have anything in my size in the colours that I wanted but I was happy to wait.
Then I got a sneak peak
Then another one a short time later
I really loved getting updates throughout the making process and couldn’t contain my excitement when the final photo came through.
It was finished! I fell in love with it instantly.
I’ve been wearing my jumper coat for a few weeks now and get compliments everywhere. It really is the most amazing piece of clothing I have ever bought. Even if Hubby finds it funny to comment “how can you say you’re cold? You’ve got 20 jumpers on!”
