Every time I make another coat, I am reminded how much I enjoy working with them. Especially ones made with wool. I think I'm going to seriously work on my tailoring skills and make jackets for everyone in the family: a husband, three sons, and a daughter. That should keep me busy for a while.
The fabrics are wool plain weave flannels. I like the way the plaid and the rose go together. The top bodice and the pocket flaps of the coat will be in the plaid.
The facings and collar will be in the rose. I'm hoping this isn't too crazy a combination. I like the plaid, but too much plaid is just too much plaid. I wanted the whole coat to be in the rose, but I just didn't have quite enough.
So that's where we're at so far.
