Camel Toggle Coat
I finally made my Albion coat!. This project has been on my mind since the first day of fall and I am proud to say I completed it. When I picked up this pattern I loved the fact that It would have a duel use as a coat for either me or my boyfriend. I also loved the photo's and I knew I would take it on after seeing so many sewists who succesfully altered the pattern. MY first idea was to make the jacket version using an army green cotton canvas fabric. and line it with a plaid flannel.I changed my mind since I already own a jacket this color and I wanted to try a new color. I found this cheap faux wool and plaid fabric that happened to macth perfectly. I altered the pattern which sat untouched for about a month until I was finally ready to tackle it. Here it is my most advanced project yet,and my first time adding a lining to any garment. next version will most likely be made with a goregous olive green twill I have had my eye on from mood. .
