Sewing: Winter Coat Project Part 1
I've played around with a couple of jackets here and here - both relatively simple in construction - and am now venturing into a more complex type of coat. For this initial foray, I am experimenting with quilted faux leather and heather gray fleece. At the moment, this is still a work in progress. The edges are still raw, I haven't affixed the closures, and I haven't decided on what kind of pockets I want. I initially thought leather patch pockets, but am wondering if that is too much contrast. Maybe fleece patch pocket with a leather flap? Decisions… If you have any thoughts on the pockets, I'd love to hear!
