More Men’s Coat V8940 (and Adventures in Thedas)

v8940fabricAND1frontunderstructureI’m still working on V8940. The fronts have all their understructure and padstitching.  Which is a roundabout way of saying that everything I’ve done so far happens before Step 1 of the pattern.  I did mention I’m slow, right?

Given that it’s the later part  of winter here, I’m sewing toward next winter.

I referenced several books (listed in my last post  about the coat) while making decisions — (Ledbetter and Lansing’s is particularly good for choosing between methods) — but now that I’m sewing, referencing too many makes me muddled, so I’ve stuck to the very clear, one-method Cabrera book (even though I have the women’s version) and Poulin for adapting it to menswear.

I’d be further along if I hadn’t seen a dirt cheap copy of Dragon Age: Inquisition and played it through the end.  Now my favorite, easily surpassing Skyrim and Witcher III (for me at least — those are probably fighting words to many). So although I’m sewing every weekend, I took a few detours to Thedas. :/

    1. I had no idea. Thank you, Carol! When I got mine, I had to choose between men’s and women’s, and after much waffling went for women’s wear, because I’ll probably do more of that down the road than men’s, but this is very good to see right now! (I’m surprised this is on the archive, given the recent 2nd edition.)
