...firstly, thanks to everyone who tunes in to watch my 2016 Winter Coat Project - The Silvia Coatigan. My last post about the coat asked you to help me decide which of 2 fabrics to use for the coat. The majority of commentators said go with the checked fabric, so checks it is.
I thought it best to use a single layer fabric layout. Using this layout is more time consuming, but will help in matching the checked print of the fabric. As you know that means that each pattern piece has to be laid out twice. To facilitate, I went ahead and traced the five pieces of the coat shell again.
