Indygo Junction 740: First Photos

The shell of the coat is complete.  Next is to cut and sew the lining.  I'm still trying to decide what type of lining to use:  Kasha or polyester.  I'll think on it a few days before proceeding.  In the meantime, here are some photos.

 

The design is remarkably symmetric throughout the coat.  I did not intend to do this and tried not to put circles near the bust.  Having it sewn together, the circles on the front aren't as bad as I originally thought.

Until next time, peace.

  3. Yes, this coat is going to work - I'm thrilled for you. Can you insert a piece of lining in the coat and see how it feels before deciding?

    1. Thank you Juli! I'm so happy that the sleeve fits. The collar also sits nicely across the back.

  9. Wow!!! I love that coat, looks fabulous!!

    I can understand your predicament on the lining... I have some gorgeous bemberg lining I got in Feb for lining pants... But I don't know if I'll be okay with the slipperiness (that's a word,rt?)

    What if you tried on other garments lined with kasha and polyester to figure our what YOU like, not worrying about what will go with this garment?

    1. Slipperiness is definitely a word in my book. =)

      I've made garments lined with Kasha, Bemberg, and polyester. I favor Kasha and Bemberg over polyester any day. The concern I have is no so much how it will feel, but if the coat will be too heavy. Plus I'm a little scared to cut into the Kasha since I got it for such a good price in Toronto. It's really expensive here and I don't want to waste it. Silly me! I bought this lining for this coat and I'm afraid to use it.
