Hi! I’m deep into a very satisfying and immersive project at the moment - a heavy duty winter coat in this devine magenta boiled wool!
The coat is fully lined so I opted for a pretty Liberty style floral cotton lining for the body
... and more practical anti-static lining for the sleeves for ease of getting it off and on over winter layers!
The pattern contains a LOT of pieces so I recommend taking an evening to just cut out the paper pattern and familiarise yourself with any markings- you will need them all!
I then spent another (fairly long) evening cutting out the fabric, linings and interfacing, transferring notches and markings using a dampened chalk pencil then pressing on the interfacing. I put on a podcast and settled into it for a few hours!
Now to start the sewing!
I’ll be back with an update next week!
