Grainline Cascade from Remnants
I don't want to call it too soon but it is looking suspiciously like spring has arrived early this year. Since winter arrived in May, I wouldn't be at all disappointed, but I do hope to get a few more ski days in yet. With spring in mind, I best catch up on my winter blog posts.
I went through my remnant stash and found two different fabric that would be suitable to combine with my Marc Jacobs plaid. One was a wool knit boucle that I made Courteneys bomber out of last winter and the second was a lighter weight wool blend that I made my Tessuti Sydney jacket out of . I was determined since this was a leftover coat, not to invest too much money in it.
To line the coat I initially bought some satin from Lincraft but after Courteneys disastrous fraying issue, I decide to line with cotton in the body and bemberg lining for the sleeves.
To add some body and extra warmth to the sleeves, I interlined the wool left over from my Sydney jacket with some brushed cotton shirting. I then made the zip front bands using some spotted novelty cotton from Lincraft. The zip came from my stash and Courteney kindly donated her leftover toggles.
The above photos were taken at our rental in Queenstown. It would be hard to beat that view!
