So, here’s the fabric I’d like to use to knock-off the Anthropologie Check Please peacoat. It was a Fashion Fabrics Club purchase from a couple years ago.
Isn’t it lovely? And, a nice thematic match?
But, I only have two yards and the pattern calls for 3.25. This $10 a yard fabric is left over from an ill-fated attempt at a Burda coat. It was made in the time before blogging and it was so horrible, that even my spendthrift, can’t-you-still-use-that cut-fabric mother told me to let it go.
Phyllis thinks if I do a single layer, no bias yoke I might be able to squeeze it in. I’m going to troll around for some black, white or gray wool in the stash that might suffice for the facing too. But, if you bought this too and are willing to sell it off, let a sister know!
This weekend I’m visiting a girlfriend on the Eastern Shore and next weekend I’m visiting Trena in DC and Karen in Philly. So, I’m not sure when I’ll have time. But, Imma git her done as the folks say!
On another note, how excited am I about this new show? It’s an eight episode special on Sundance following the Buyer at Large for Anthropologie!! Man Shops Globe. It’s fashion, shopping, and travel!
