Today's finished project:
A white viking coat, trimmed in blue linen and a gold-and-blue metallic woven trim.
This fabric is really cool. I can't for the life of me remember what it's called - it's heavy, woven, wool/poly fabric made for blankets and linings. It's lightly felted on the inside, and is REALLY warm and soft.
Fun fact: I'm allergic as crap to wool. After working on this all day (I went into it thinking this was cotton, and wasn't wearing gloves, sleeves, or long pants!), I feel like I've been dusted all over with fiberglass. $%&1&@#*!!! But it's really neat stuff. :)
The fleur-de-lis pin is the client's. Totally not viking, but it was in the bag, so I slapped it on there to take the picture for her, hehe. :)
Whew! That's four pieces completed this week. All I have left this month is two complete pieces and then a HUGE stack of alterations and repairs. More sewing! All the sewing!
