A new Coat of…

    1. Hope so! Big decision though- I keep reading blogs with folkses who ‘block fuse’ before starting sewing…I’m very wary in case there’s bubbling [even though I bought good quality fusible]. Do you think it’s really necessary to fuse the whole thing? I only usually do the facings/edges and add a teeny bit of tailoring with chest/back supports….

  1. That cashmere looks fabulous! Can’t recall seeing the coating fabrics in Fancy Silk when I was there in October, but then a day in Brum at the fabric shops is always a bit overwhelming. I look forward to seeing how this coat progresses – I’m sure it will be divine.

      1. There is so much in that store, I never saw them there. Birmingham is a bit of a trek for me, but with the lack of shops round here, I try to make it up there a few times a year. Many thanks for the offer, perhaps in the New Year when I’ve reduced the haul I brought back from there last time. I can easily be persuaded…….

  2. Oooooooo! This is going to be beautiful! I have yards of astrakhan in my stash because I went through a season of making little dress coats for my daughters, all trimmed in the stuff. A word of warning: you will be sneezing out the black ‘dust’ from the fabric for days. Totally worth it, though!

  3. Following along when sewers start a new project just makes me drool!!! Using top quality fabrics and proper planning is orgasmic! Using red cashmere just takes the cake….can’t wait to see how your creative brain jiggles all this into something wonderful!

    1. I must get it cut out and just sew it! I will underline for warmth [those playgrounds are COLD and my post has no shelter] but keep seeing people doing this block fusing thing. Should I bother or not? I will prob put some hair canvas into upper body because of the weight of all that wool…I don’t want to ruin the cashmere if the fusing goes wonky…
