Shakin' in my boots


It isn't often that a pattern gets the best of me but darnit this one has thrown me for a loop!
Farmgirl needs a huntseat coat for her upcoming equestrian shows. I had visions of a gorgeous teal lined charcoal coat. Luckily, I decided to do a test coat in this inexpensive fabric first.

This is as far as I've come...to the collar. sigh. linings, welted pockets, multiple layers of stabilizer...it's a nightmare. I'm hoping I get my sewing mojo back soon and can tackle her real show coat soon.

I am in awe. You are are skilled and brave. I hope it falls in to place, so that you can tackle the teal lined coat you envisioned.

you sure got farther than I would have! I would have taken one look at the front of the pattern, and said "aint no way! Im gonna have to buy ya a store coat!"

You're very brave.

Hope it turns out well!
