On another note I finally finished a coat I’ve been working on for awhile. I found this beautiful purple herringbone wool blend on sale and knew it would be perfect for a coat.
Instead of buttons and buttonholes I ended up doing plastic snaps. It worked because the coat isn’t too thick. It was much faster than buttonholes, there was no hand-sewing, and I really like the look of it.
I did a special technique for the lining that I’ll teach you next week. I’m really excited to share it!
