The last time I was in there, one of the staff (it will surprise no-one to learn that I know all the staff there!) pointed out a large remnant in the 'wool mix' section. It was an attractive raspberry/heather-ish colour, but nothing remarkable except that it was machine-stitched into 2" squares.
|Move along please, nothing to see here|
Once turned over, the reason for the stitching becomes clear. It is backed with black organza, and trapped between the two layers is a scattering of pink feathers.
I loved it, so it has been added to the stash. I had already decided that it would be perfect for a coat, as it is in effect self-lining. But it would need to be a simple coat, with minimal shaping, preferably no facings, and definitely no shoulder padding. Then I remembered that I have this.
|Simple shape, and no facings|
I think I may have found the perfect match!
