Have not sewed it yet, but

Have not sewed it yet, but soon. I'm working on the cotton coat now, need a little more yardage because of a booboo, but the warp for that is on the loom this morning.

Amazing accomplishment!

Reed Guy, your double weave wool coat is a beauty!  It looks like you even used your button hole attachment. Looks like a nice slippery smooth lining too. Your projects are remarkable. I'm glad for the warm weather this week, but you'd be cozy if it stays cold a while more!

Yes, I did use the button

Yes, I did use the button-holer on the sewing machine, but it was challenging on this thick fabric. I hand sewed the buttons on though. :)

The lining is about CDN $9 a yard, I know if I could have gotten to Bangor, Maine I could have got it for $4 a yard. Fabric here in Canada is expensive at shops. Don't know why unless there is a huge textile tariff on imports. Maybe greed. Thread is also crazy high, same German thread that can be got in Maine for far less. Cotton weaving yarn is cheaper than sewing thread, and more weaving yarn on a  spool. Figure that one out.
