I'm still debating the wool coat pattern. While I ponder I whipped up a pair of work-out pants. These are a thick, black, matte, nylon/lycra fabric I bought in Hawaii. They are nothing special but they are perfect for workout pants. I used the Jalie pattern I have used so many times before. These just fit really well. I used 1" elastic like they suggest.
I serged the elastic onto the WS and then flipped it to the right side and coverstitched it. In this (fuzzy/shitty/blurry) photo, you may be able tl see the four-thread overlock stitch and the wrong side of the coverstitch. Of course, maybe not.
I think I've decided on the 10-2008 jacket for my coat. I love the lines and the collar. I also love the snaps. I saw someone with tortoise-shell snaps a while back. I'll have to run through my blogroll and see if I can figure out where they bought theirs. I think I may like something like that for my coat.
