The Christine Jonson pattern is on it's way to Meggipeg and it was so much fun that I have decided on impulse to do it again. I'm giving another pattern away.
My current project is a little fun coat to use up some folkloric material that has marinated in the stash for a few years. Luckily, since I love the colors I don't care whether or not folkloric is in fashion at the moment.
Is it in, out, or somewhere in suspended animation? On second thoughts, don't tell me. As if the ladies of Advanced Style (see blog on my sidebar) would care. They would just accessorize it with chunky jewelery and a fox fur hat and go for it. I may as well tell you during my travels I nearly bought a fox fur hat from a Russian craft fair in northern Norway. A few more Norwegian shots here I'd never seen any snow capped mountains before and there they were at the end my my street opposite my hostel.
Unfortunately I had run out of money for fox hats, needing to keep eating on my travels. I also missed out on buying a Norwegian hand knitted sweater :((
Anyway ... here's the work in progress.
No It's Not a Matador Costume!
My quick (ha ha) project is turning out to be a little more time consuming than I expected. The material is a very fine lightweight corduroy. The design is printed on the fabric and is a mix of flowered borders and panels and has a one way nap. Lots of work with placement. It needed interlining. And the pattern is way more complex than first appears. I am simplifying it to let the material do the talking.
What's the pattern? You, dear reader, have to tell me. The first five people that comment correctly with the pattern number of the above project & who want the pattern below will go in the draw for this OOP beauty. It's late. I will try to post a clearer photo of this design ensemble tomorrow. Uncut, much admired but untouched. 12 -14-16.
If no one guesses my coat pattern number I will give out more clues.
