We're in the 3rd week of the Waffle Patterns Pepernoot Coat Sew Along and I am in love with my coat. Talk about flower power!!!The fabric I'm using for the lining is from Tessuti Fabrics in Australia. when I purchased the fabric, I had a skirt in mind. Maybe serendipity, maybe just dumb luck, but when I began working on the coat, I immediately realized that the fabric was perfect for a lining. The only problem is that I only purchased a meter of fabric, so not enough to line the entire coat. But, I had a beautiful piece of black silk that blended perfectly with the fabric, so rather than ditch the idea, the sleeves are lined in black.
The lining prior to the sleeves being added.
If you would like to check out the 3rd week of the sew along, you can find it HERE on the Sew News blog.
I can't wait to finish my coat. I'm hoping to wear it on Easter Sunday. In our final post, we'll work on the pockets, attach the
hood, insert the center front zipper and hem the skirt and sleeves.
If by chance you are working on a Pepernoot Coat, I hope you are loving yours as much as I am loving mine!

I think that one of my next projects will be the vest. Love the dart detail around the neckline.
