The pattern I'm using is the popular Vogue 7975. I'm not sure about sleeve length or pocket style yet. I ordered swatches from Linton Tweeds and can't wait for them to arrive. I think I want a white or cream or light tan wool tweed, but I also asked for pastels to see some options. I didn't put a price cap on my request, so this could be interesting... At least I only need a yard and a half!
I'll be using Claire Shaeffer's Couture Sewing Techniques as a big help, although I don't plan to do everything by hand. If it takes too long to make, I'll get bored and give up.
