Line Me Please!

My trench coat is ready for lining.  Here it is without facings and lining.
This will be a coat I'll love when it's finished.  The lining is aqua, a little lighter than the coat.

I'm hoping to finish it this week.  Famous last words!

Beautiful coat! When it comes to coats I normally look for simple, but a trench coat is a testimony to its military origins. Your coat is a true classic with its storm flaps, epaulets, cuff belt & topsticthing... love it.

Stash said...

I knew I was going to love this and I do! Yummy!

Jody said...

I LOVE your trench coat!!!!! The color and design - WONDERFUL!!!! Where did you find this great pattern? What kind of fabric did you use? QUESTIONS, many questions!

Simple, I love it!

Linda said...

Gwen, I am in love with your trench coat. Love the color. Fantastic job. Can't wait to see it on.

Kathi said...

Very pretty!! I know what you mean by those famous last words! I have buttons to put on my rain coat, but my button hole foot doesn't make button holes that big. I have practiced making them without the automatic foot, but it is difficult on the laminated cotton I used. I have put so much time into the coat that I am at a loss as to what to do about the buttonholes! I thought I would have all of it finished over a month ago . . .

Thanks so much for the review of the Simplicity Binding machine. I am waiting for mine, sometimes the mail is so slow ;o) I was having doubts after I order it becasue I have not actually seen the machine. Your review has made me feel good about my purchase.

I have been searching for sewing and quilting Blogs and ran across yours. I decided to follow yours after reading the review and your profile bit on the Home page. We are the same age so I think I will enjoy your posts. We have most likely the same memories of patterns, sewing machines, notions etc from the past. I am looking forward to following your Blog. I have just started a Blog of my own. However I am so new to Blogging it is going to take me awhile to figure out all the things to make it a Blog folks will actually want to follow.
