Project #9 will be the Raglan-Sleeve Coat, a roomy swing coat. I started by making a muslin. I thought I would need extra room since my pattern is intended for a 32" to 34" bust. But no! It fits perfectly. It's not really much to see yet, is it?
I've also been gathering my supplies. I'm making it in a pretty blue wool/angora coating from Paron's. It will have a caramel-colored charmeuse lining with big white polka dots. And the icing on the cake? A removable faux fur collar. I can't wait to cozy up in it this fall!
P.S. Also on the interwebs today: check out my interview with Alison Reid, author of Stitch Magic--the book that inspired my STC Craft Stitch-Along!
