I shortened the pattern by 9 inches. The fur at the top photo is what I'm using for the collar and cuffs and that will be backed by silk. The fur below I didn't care for.
Yesterday late I started this coat dress pattern I've been threatening to make for ages! This fabric is wool gaberdine mail order what else and I must say I don't like it at all. It feels just like polyester to me and I wonder if that isn't what they sent me as it does not smell like wool when pressed. Well anyway I have three yards of this and the dress if finally cut and I'm starting to put it together today after a meeting this morning. I've been stalling on it due to this fabric I don't like but living up here we have to made do and carry on.
