I am participating in a tailoring sew-along over at pattern-scissors-cloth. I'm so excited! She's going to go into all the details of altering patterns, fitting, industry tips and tricks, and since I am a completely self-taught seamstress, I am excited to either: learn something new, or: confirm that I was doing it right after all!
I found this pattern that I just LOVE. Of course I plan to alter it almost beyond recognition, but here's what I'm starting with.
Now I need to decide which fabric to use. Both are nice washable wool blends. The grey was a thrift store find and has a light weight black interfacing on the back, so it's quite stiffer than the black. What do you think?
