I visited The Fabric Store at Surry Hills last Friday afternoon and found this wonderful tweed and it was on sale as well.
It has a cream base with mauve, aubergine, brown through it and it really lifts my aubergine wool. I'm so happy.
I am trying to find some interesting lining to use. I keep changing my mind about my trim, will I use the fringed edge or braid. I have 2 Chanel jackets and they both have braid and I think I do prefer this style.
I'm also not sure if I will make 3/4 or full length sleeves, will probably make this decision as I'm cutting out my fabric.
Thank you everyone for all your informative posts, they are such a joy to read.
