Cascade Duffle Coat - Sewing Studio Fabric

Another new coat for me and it is so fun!

Cascade Duffle Coat

Another Coat for me!  This one is going to take a bit to sew and right after my Moto Jacket.  I point this out because two lengthy projects in a row is unusual for me but I have always wanted to make this Cascade Coat.  Now seemed like the perfect time!

So the newest coat is Grainline Studio's Cascade Duffle Coat and using corduroy for a 70's feel.

The fabric is from Sewing Studio in Wine and it is gorgeous.  Now, the pictures are from construction and they do have so lint!  Toggles from an Etsy Store

I did want to interline the jacket, I used some flannel.  Stitched it at 3/8" (seam allowance is 1/2") and I trimmed close to the stitching line.

The pockets are lined with solid color lining and thank goodness for my chalk marker.

Lastly a picture of the zipper.  I have to confess, this took me about 4 tries to get it just right and to lay right and the front band to sit right.  More than three times a charm but the zipper is done.

I did shorted my separating zipper, a first for me.  It really was quite easy and I will do it as needed in the future.

Sewing Studio provided me with the fabric for this project and I am so happy to have this opportunity to create with this fabric.

McCall's 7694 - Wool Tweed

McCall's 7694 moto jacket made from Mood Fabrics' wool tweed

 So I saw this fabulous Moto Jacket Pattern,  McCall's 7694 and knew I had to make it, does that ever happen to you?  Pattern in hand I headed to Mood Fabrics and started my search.  Wool tweed is what I had in my head to make this jacket and I found, Bordeaux and White Speckled Wool  Tweed, which is almost sold out so act quickly.  If this is not your colorway, don't worry, Mood Fabrics has a great selection of wool tweeds.  While at Mood's site, I went searching for a separating  zipper and found the perfect tan color.  Next up for all my supplies was lining, Italian Grape Polyester Charmeuse.  With all my supplies on the way, I anxiously waited for the fabric delivery.
