Here is DSD's coat so far. It has been an easy sew from a decision-making point of view. I am following the construction techniques per the manufacturer of the original coat. The decisions about fabric, pattern and construction techniques can be paralyzing! Am I right? Can I get an Amen, Sister?
DSD's coat is my January Jacket. [I am participating in the Jacket-a-Month project, too. It was inspired by Gigi and all JAM chatter is happening over on the Stitchers Guild sewing discussion forum. I don't think I mentioned that yesterday].
And thanks to Sherry for posting a comment about Casey's Swing Dress Sewalong.
If you aren't already reading, Sherry is a real (educated and experienced) pattern-maker and custom dressmaker, so she drops all kinds of insanely useful information on her blog Pattern~Scissors~Cloth . Likewise, if you don't already read Casey's Elegant Musings, check it out; a very pretty blog.
Today, happy anniversary to my dear husband. In 2005, we merged two households with teenagers, a couple of high pressure jobs and a challenging commute between Baltimore and Washington DC. We are all thriving. I love you, my dear! And deep thanks to our children for sticking with us through thick and thin.
To everyone else, Happy Martin Luther King Eve, day!
*And, as always, happy sewing*
