The impetus for starting this blog was Gertie’s Lady Grey Coat Sew-Along. Frankly, I’m tired of sitting on the sidelines and letting everyone else have all the fun!
For this project, after much hemming and hawing over fabric and lining choices I’ve finally settled on my choices. I’d like to make this coat a wardrobe staple. This, coupled with the local tropical climate, led me to choose a black wool gabardine:
I decided that I’d like a lining with an unexpected pop of color so I chose this lovely silk crepe in a mint green:
Tomorrow I plan to use a coupon to buy some cheaper wool gab for my muslin. I’m very excited about this sew-a-long and I’m very excited to be blogging again. Now if I could just figure out how to add the button to my sidebar, I’d be good to go!
