I've been meaning to make this coat for about three years. That's when I made my first wool coat, in a class. Shortly after I finished that first one, I bought this much nicer fabric, a wine and black tweed, to make a second one. Between then and now, I decided to use a different pattern, so it's not the same style as my previous coat. (Although it is quite similar; it seems my taste is pretty consistent.)
Anyway, I just finished it. Here it is, hot off the pressing table. It's a straight style with asymmetric opening, stand collar, one button at top and hidden snaps down the front, in wine and black tweed with dark charcoal wool facings and tipping down the front. The single-welt pockets are also tipped. I used the Verona coat and jacket pattern from The Sewing Workshop. The fabric is Linton tweed, from Emmaonesock.com, a wine soft-back rayon-acetate lining from Nancy's Sewing Basket in Seattle, and a charcoal wool remnant that I've had for some time.
Just had to share, especially since I've told everyone about the project and have mentioned it here on the forum, too. Thanks for looking!
