(From left to right) The grey fabric is a cotton
stretch suiting, the floral is a Charmeuse satin, and the purple
is a poly crepe suiting!
I also purchased the fabric for my first coat. It is gorgeous! 100% Shetland Wool, the exact color I was looking for too. I purchased the fabric from Fabric Mart fabrics, it is a lovely "Candy Apple Red", at least according to their web site.. I sure hope so, fingers crossed. I am also planning to do a little tailoring with this coat. I plan to use as reference the "Lady Grey sew along" that was hosted last year by the talented Gertie from the "Blog for better sewing"..I also have the book "The Classic Guide to Sewing the Perfect Jacket.. I am going for it Divas!
