Autumn Sewing

I've borrowed Ian's notebook so I can post again, yay!

I've been busy making work clothes over the last few weeks and will post some photographs later.  I used a KwikSew pattern for the first time and am astounded at the great fit, which means I will be adding more of their patterns to my collection over the next couple of seasons for sure!

Anyway, this is my next project.  Because I'm pushed for time now I am working full time, it had to be quick, simple, but do the job:

An Autumn coat/jacket to wear walking to and from the car park:

Vogue 8562

I will probably make the longer version, depending on the length of fabric I bought (yes, sorry, not coming from the stash!) and will be using a brown based tweed which I suspect may need some supersoft interfacing added to it to help keep its shape.  Here it is, not a great photo, I lifted it from the Fabricland website.

If  you like this pattern you should note that it's about to go out of print, according the the Sew Today website.

Wish me luck, I'll be starting it on Sunday, with a view to finishing it same day!

Have a good weekend all

Looks like the perfect sort of easy outer piece for autumn. I like your fabric choice too.
Just to let you know, I had to delete my old blog, Making the Seam, due to malware. I started a new blog and you can find me here
