Over the last couple of months I’ve slowly been gathering supplies for a new jacket.
Since making my Anise I sort of laughably said I’d never make another coat or jacket. Well that didn’t last long.
You can see I was interested in a notched collar and a pea coat shape. I did want something a bit longer than a jacket but not quite a coat.
I came pretty close to drafting something myself but then I settled on the Burda and will adjust as needed (pattern on offer here).
While shopping at Samuel Taylors in Leeds I saw a beautiful pale aqua wool coating but couldn’t shake the idea of a darker teal colour.
During a fortunate spot of eBay surfing last month I found a seller offering this gorgeous high heel print silk satin and snapped it up for the lining.
It’s a soft grey colour with some shoes in outline only and others coloured in pink, green, yellow.
Now I need fusible underlining and interfacing, and coordinating buttons.
Sadly with all the Christmas sewing I’ve got on my plate I’m not sure when I’ll be able to make a toile but I hope it’ll be soon. I’d like to get back to selfish sewing haha.
