The fabric for my wool coat

Here is my grey coat fabric. Let me tell you, it’s still chilly in these parts so it’ll be nice to have a light Spring coat and if I don’t finish it by Summer, I’ll have a nice Autumnal coat instead!

This is the wrong side, it’s very fuzzy and soft!

It took me a while to figure out what exactly this fabric is. It’s a wool blend and I believe it is a wool jersey or knit. Something like that. :P It’s fuzzy and soft on one side and smooth on the other. If I am incorrect, please correct me! I love to learn new things. I am pre-shrinking it right now in my dryer with this method:

Anyways, I’m really sorry for such a late update. I’ve had to pull a couple of double shifts at my two jobs and some crazy stuff has been coming up at work and my personal life. But I think things are going to calm down again. I still think I work too much…but I think I’ll be able to sort it out soon.

Mr Vixen has been dealing with some terrible things too and it has been spilling over into my life. It’ll be alright but I wish life was less stressful. I still haven’t found any appropriate fabric for my pink half-slip but I’ll be going to the fabric stores again this week. Yay!

  1. Har har Whang, it’s not stolen, other more prominent bloggers than I also use Shabby Blogs. Anyways, there was something that was just “off” about the last layout. So I tweaked it!
