In the meantime I thought I would show you my Sewaholic Minoru that I sewed this spring. I used a waterproof cotton fabric that was a little nerve racking to sew as once you sew it you can't remove stitches without have holes. I lined it with Kasha lining for a little extra warmth.
This is the first time I have sewn an outdoor coat and I will be doing it again. Since I'm tall ready to wear never fits well. Sleeves are always either too short or just barely long enough. Lengths of jackets are always shorter than they should be. I would like to sew another version in a wool coating fabric.
I love the hidden hood on this coat, it s nice to hide it away for a nicer look when not needed
