What a stinker!
No, I am not talking about the actual results, I'm saying it stinks, the plaid smells like it's been in a damp attic for 20 years and the jean, washed 3 times, has the bouquet of an oil tanker. Pressing was horrendous, the mix was toxic.
As you can see at the back, it's hanging a little funny and I'll have to undo the pretty topstitching and go back in to fix the hem because the two fabrics hang too differently. But, I still am being real smug here as I am quite proud of myself for, this coat is REVERSIBLE!
Though as I have said before, it doesn't have the necessary winterwear ease, the puzzle was a lot of fun to put together and kept me up at night, as I made up funky sewing instructions when trying to find a way to pass the sash from one side to the other which, as you know, led to my recent miscalculation.
I'll let it hang outside all summer to get rid of the foul smell (I feel like Charlie Brown's Linus when I wear it) and will redo the hem right before the nighttime temperature drops in August. This should take me to the end of November, when I'll start thinking about making a winter coat again.
