Simplicity 4699 Jacket/Coat in navy brocade in progress.

Simplicity 4699 Jacket/Coat in navy brocade in progress.

I know I've not been reporting much here on the blog. I have started sewing the Simplicity 4699 Jacket/Coat in navy brocade and its going well.
This is part of my PR wardrobe. I had originally planned a burnt orange jacket/coat which I will still sew, but I decided that I'm going for the navy in the wardrobe to make more of an ensemble look with the yet to be made navy bottoms.
I've also decided to line it, although this isn't included in the pattern as the brocade is cotton and not in the least bit slidey I think it would be hard to get on and off without.

So I have a lot to do yet - attach collar and facing and sleeves, and add lining.
Photos will come later :-)
