I am currently working on a coat from Vogue 2472 (I think it is OOP). It is a raglan sleeve coat, I'm working on View C with a large stand-up collar, and offset closures.

It is out of a short pile faux fur fabric with an interesting design that is from the change in nap that I purchased at my local Fabricland (November/December 2013?). I hand-stitched the sew-in interfacing in last week, and stitched the coat and lining together yesterday. I am putting an interlining layer in for warmth (I'm thinking of flannelette), but I have to search some fabric for it out at my LFS tonight (can you believe I have absolutely nothing in my stash!!?!). I'm lining it with Kasha lining (a heavier weight lining with a brushed almost flannel type backing). This won't be an every day coat, but when I do wear it for an evening out, I will most likely not be wearing something overly warm underneath!
So...tonight after work, I'm heading to my local Fabricland. Hopefully I will restrain myself from purchasing any new fabrics (other than the interlining)...my sewing studio is being over run by bins and piles!!
