In the Works

Hello Friends and Readers, I hope you all had a great week. I haven’t been doing much sewing of any kind lately. I was sick last week so there was just no sewing. Also, the Open Robe took a little bit out of me and I just need a little break. I have, as always, been planning for future projects.

I just purchased the Wingeo 1790-1820 Frock Coat pattern for Aaron. I found some very nice black cotton corduroy that can pass as wool for the coat and the breeches. I also have a very nice forest green cotton velvet for another frock coat. Although I haven’t decided on the cut yet.

As for me, I haven’t decided what I want to make next. I have quite a bit of fabric in my stash to work with. It’s just a matter of not having a clear idea of what’s next. I did decide to purchase this Calash pattern from Wingeo. We are planning some out door wintery things for December, and I think a Calash will be most needed and appreciated. Especially once the beautiful Oregon rains really kick in.

Well, that’s about all folks . Have a great week and Happy November!!!

God Bless!

Love Lauren

Happy November to you too! I have been taking a break from the internet - and so am now just catching up on everyone's blogs. Can't wait to see what you have in store! :)

I can't wait to hear what you think about the frock coat pattern. I've been wondering if it would be a good one to get for David.

Hope you are having a lovely month so far. I have been having a bit of sewing burn out too. A break once in a while is a great thing. :)

Oooh! I'm excited to see how your coats come out! Great minds think alike :)
I actually like Wingeo patterns, from what I've used.
I hope you're feeling better!

Be carefull with the frock-pattern! It isn't very historically acurate and you will have to take one or two sizes smaller than on the chart, because it turns out very big...
