Remember when I finished my coat? And I kept saying I loved it so much that I was planning on making another? I wasn't just being effusive - I'd already ordered the fabric for coat #2, and it came the very next day after I showed you coat #1.
I wasn't really planning on starting it right away, but the weather is so dreary here today that I just needed a boost of color. So I cut and constructed the lining:
Yep, it's more of that Sinister Swarm - this time in voile. BTW, I can confirm that those are moths - they have fuzzy antennae. The colors in this print are just incredible: chartreuse, coral, turquoise, lavender, ochre, umber, orange, wine, pink and light blue. I would never have come up with that palette - Anna Maria Horner is a genius!
The outer this time around is a solid sateen in coral, my new favorite color. It's a little lighter in real life than what I could capture on this overcast day:
I think it's a good thing I've decided to start this so soon after the first one - the process is still fresh in my mind. I was able to construct this lining without referring to the directions! This time I'm planning on making self-covered buttons from the outer fabric, and bound buttonholes to make it a little bit fancier.
I often sew the same pattern two or even three times in a row. Do you guys do that?
