As you can see, my painting by numbers is coming along very nicely, with all the solid colours sourced; the cuff fabric sorted out ages back; the hand-woven collar done; and the AMAZING lining done to perfection.
So what does that leave?
Just THREE fabrics and I’m there - at last!
Fabric 1 Red TartanThis is currently being woven by a renowned Scottish tartan mill. When it is done, it is going to carefully finished to give it a slightly vintage feel, so it doesn’t look like it has been woven yesterday, which of course it will have been!
Fabric 9 Woven BackAs you will have seen in my previous posting, the yarns have been lovely selected, and the fabric is being woven as I write. I have seen a preview of it on the loom, and it looks brilliant!
Fabric 13 Applique StripI have sourced the raw materials needed for this, and need to sit down and work it all out and actually make it. Bit fiddly, but nothing that can’t be made.
It’s been over two years in the preparation, but it’s gonna be worth it.
After all it’s gonna be the ULTIMATE Six Frock Coat!
