But, while looking for patterns and ideas for an alternative plan for the JCC I came across this from the Aug 2007 issue of Patrones. And, it's exactly, and I mean exactly what speaks to me for the purple wool. It's the type of coat that was in my mind when I bought the purple wool. Something slightly more trendy than classic. Something fun.
The problem with the purple LaMode - which is an exact color match although it doesnt' photograph like it, is that the store doesnt' have enough, and it's old stock. I'm not sure I would have any luck finding more of the right size.
I love the metal, vintage streamline, but they might not be right for this coat. Although they would work for the coat that I've muslined already for this wool.
I'm open for opinions.
Meanwhile: I will get around to writing a tutorial for a 2 piece sleeve - however, not this month. I'm leaving town in a week and I've got a lot on my plate right this minute. If you're in need of some resources check out this from the Vintage sewing site and this from Leena
