I sort of feel like I'm cheating with my pattern selection because I've used this one before. However, it's the closest thing in my pattern stash that fits the vision of a coat I wanted to make last winter so, sew be it.
I'll be making the short wrapped version this time using the pattern's regular collar and lapel.
I have a wonderful plaid wool purchased for $5.95 (value $24.95) at Hancock's Black Saturday sale last year.
Decisions, decisions, decisions! I've been so back and forth about this thing, but finally had to make up my mind before I missed the entire sew-along - and that would just never do.
So okay, you DO remember how this coat making process thing goes don't you? I cry, I moan, I whine and I complain for about a month while working diligently on the project, AND I report it ALL right here for you to witness. (Mother and my other cheerleaders, are you ready?) And don't forget: YOU LOVE ME AND WILL STICK RIGHT HERE WITH ME THROUGH IT ALL, and at the end of the Amazing Coat Sew-Along I have another wonderful coat that I LOVE, and ADORE and get to wear winter after winter after winter...
