New Sewing Project Started (a big one)

This is a new project I have picked out to make from Craftsy.com This darling short coat. I just love the look of it. 

here is the fabric it's a Italian Nassau blue wool-cashmere with a viscose lining in the same shade from Mood Fabric.

The coat has an underlining, an interfacing, and a lining. So there is a lot going on there. Cutting out here today is the underlining.
My student Autumn is going to be making this with me and we both can watch a video on my laptop in the sewing room of the steps how to. Craftys.com makes it very easy for you if you've never tried a class please do.
Here I am in the jacket I made with silk from Montmartre when in Paris last Sept. I used a really pretty black vintage glass button on this. The jacket is also lined on the top half in a white silk. The pattern was quite the nightmare and I'll never use one of those again from Nancy's Notions.
