42 pieces

United at last.   

 
Many times i was afraid they were going to stay as pieces, on my sewing room floor.

And now it’s fall and except for the hood, the coat is ready just in time to usher in the cooler weather. 

 
Once again, it was a Waffle pattern.  The outer material is a silk cotton twill which i ordered from China.  It’s hard to shop for material when i can’t touch it or get a sense of its weight.  So i researched lots on suitable coat fabrics.  I didn’t consider silk at first but i love it, its softness, the drape, how breathable  it is. 

 
The lining is Habotai silk accented with some fantastic beetle wool-silk blend (also from China).

  

Gosh, i even look as if i can hardly believe it’s done.

    Love the beetle print fabric inside! Any chance you have extra to sell? Or can provide a source? The LazyRuler is sold out.

      Unless you need it for a very small project, I unfortunately can’t help you. What I have left is less than a fat quarter. I did a quick search and couldn’t find any other sources. I’m sorry I couldn’t be more helpful.
