The Wazoodle Coat
I will be using a mid-weight wool/cashmere/acetate blend melton in balsam. I purchased this fabric in several colourways from Wazoodle many years ago (back when they actually carried fabrics that were desirable - lately, their selection has been less than stellar). Since I want this coat to be reasonably warm in the colder weather, I will be underlining the entire garment in a thick ivory coloured cotton flannel, also purchased from Wazoodle.
As this coat is to be a quick(ish) wearable muslin to test fit, I won't be going crazy with the tailoring techniques. I have plans to use this pattern for a bigger project if this garment turns out well.
