Here's my second installment of what I like to call, "Ann kicks much ass." See this blog entry over at Sew Random for more details. If I tackle this jacket I won't be making it in a week but, well, maybe I might. I think already a week behind . . .
I have had this delicious piece of wool coating for about a year now. It's one of those "it's too perfect to cut" pieces in my stash. It is, of course, from GorgeousFabrics.com. I don't even know how to describe how perfect this wool is. It's thick, sorta drapey, warm, and soft all wrapped into one. I want to make a thigh-length wool jacket out of it. I think I have three yards but there might only be two. I'll have to prep it and measure and see how much I have once that is done.
And I super-dee duper-dee love this yellow and brown one. I think my coat will have toggle fasteners because I love them. I want a slightly fitted shape like these two coats. I'll comb through my back issues of BWOF and see what I want to make. They have so many great jacket patterns! Hmmmmm, notice how the plaids don't watch from the bodice to the sleeve?
Got any favorites you think I need to make?? I have BWOF from March 2008 to present and a few older issues. I think tomorrow I'll post some possibilities.
