I snuck out at lunch yesterday and grabbed fabric for my next project – the LV inspired Trench Coat.
The lining is a matte satin for $13 per metre and I’m obsessed with it. It’s so soft and I adore the colours and the print. It reminds me of this super pretty floral and army green combination from Rebecca Taylor.
My next big decision is which of the design elements of McCall’s 5525, I should include as there are plenty of options.
I definitely want the length of E, but I’m tossing up whether to do the long sleeves or use the ones from view D which are bracelet length and flare out a little. They’re closer to the Louis Vuitton inspiration picture, but I wonder if the long sleeves are more user friendly.
… and then there’s all the tabs and buttons and bits and bobs too!
