I was lucky enough to get to participate in the Marji's Great Coat Sew-Along although I wasn't sure if I was going to be sewing or just watching and learning. It seems that I may get to sew, but now I can't make up my mind about a pattern. I was thinking seriously about this Patrones design, either as a raincoat or in a seafoam melton.
Then I saw this fabulous Cashmere Print, and I've been thinking about it ever since. I've gone back and forth and right now I'm forth. The big problem is that I can't decide on a pattern that would do it justice. Here is the sort of thing I'm thinking of, but I worry that the two Vogue patterns are dated, and the Simplicity is more of a jacket, which is fine, but I'm not sure I'd do it for the Sew-Along.
I'm leaning toward the swing coat slightly, and away from the Issey Miyake coat, but I am by no means wedded to anything yet.
There's also a Marfy pattern that would be great, but it would need a contrast, and I'm not sure I can get one easily, or in time. I would think the darker color would be what I'd want, and it would have to be an exact match.
The Simplicity appeals because of the bias peplum, which would show off the print very nicely.
Anyway, I'm going to have to make a decision about the Sew Along pretty soon whether I do the cashmere or not.
