Surprise a coat!

So I know you were expecting undergarments, well SURPRISE! I decided to work on a coat instead! So I am using the Simplicity pattern and a winter blue and tan plaid wool suiting along with a tan silk dupioni for the lining and trim.
Here is the fabric...
The cutting process is a bit more tedious with this fabric as I am cutting out the pieces one at a time to keep the plaid aligned. I am also using tailor tacks to mark the fabric instead of chalking it because it has a very soft  hand and I think using chalk will will result in inaccurate marks. Here is a look at how I do my tailor tacks its pretty straight forward. More soon!


  1. woohoo! Can't wait to see how this progresses!

  2. Yeah!!! Is it "tomorrow" yet? Get up and get sewing lady!!!
