I am not very good with “Along” participation. Be it sewing or knitting, I am either before or way after but very rarely “Along”. However, since the timeline on this one is pretty lax and the commitment level isn’t nearly as militant as some alongs I thought I would give an this one a try.
Trench Sew Along Schedule
May 24 — June 24: Pick out pattern, trench coat research, fabric/notions gathering
June 25 — August 25: Work on trench coat, commiserate, learn and don’t give up
August 26 or whenever you finish: Wear trench coat bursting with pride and maybe a little disbelief at how awesome it is
I have some gorgeous medium weight stretch satin fabric that will look perfect with this. I also want to get a fabulously colorful lining for the peekaboo effect. Given I should probably be making a more practical trench but this one has been on my list since it first came out. So Step 1 done. However, since I am a procrastinator extraordinaire with a two month window to work with don’t expect to hear much about step two for a little while to come 😀
