Remember my quilted Anna Sui fabric I showed you recently? I found the perfect pattern for it. I was going through my back issues of BWOF, and the November 2005 issue has a section of jackets & coats all made of quilted coating. Jackpot! This was perfect as it eliminated the guesswork of me trying to figure out if quilted fabric would work well with a particular pattern.
So far I've got part of the shell done. I bought lining fabric yesterday, I'm going to hand wash that that before cutting it out (although I already used some of it for the pockets because I was too impatient to wait).
I have to put in plug here for Zipper Stop! I've heard great things about them, so I decided to try them out - they have a great selection and will do custom sizes. I placed my online order the evening of Wednesday, October 1, and my zippers showed up in my mailbox on Saturday, October 4! I've never had a coast-to-coast order arrive so quickly.
