I changed my mind. LOL. The coat/jacket project is back on but I've changed the pattern. I think I finally am able to put my finger on my issue with that pattern. I've never really cared for the fit of an armhole princess style. If I make a princess style, I really prefer the shoulder cut instead. I should have remembered and not put myself through all the work of that muslin. So I've put that pattern and muslin aside and have found another newer pattern I'm liking even better.
This really all the progress I have to report today. I expect to get the coat cut out within the next day or so and actually start putting it together. It's a pretty straight forward project with no real surprises.
Did you all have a lovely Christmas? I had a great time with family up north. Our drive was delayed by that huge snowstorm and we got to see all the idiots in the ditch who just HAD to drive in that crazy weather. I'll bet I counted over 50 semi's alone off the road along I-80 between Des Moines and Davenport. And this happens every snowstorm. You think people would learn to pay attention to weather reports.
Ah well I got one really useful present from the parents; Susan Khalje's Bridal Couture. I haven't had a chance to dig into it yet but soon.
