I made some headway with Butterick 6169, I made all the fitting adjustments to the numerous pattern pieces. I cut fabric and then started on the lining pieces.
I decided to go with golden color for the lining. I pulled brown and black which is the predominate colors you see when you look at the fabric both real and in photos. However the lining I chose brings out the golden specks in the fabric.
I started cutting out the lining pieces and have more to cut yet.
I have been sewing such easy knit tops and dresses, that I forgot how many pieces a jacket may have. Then there is the lining fabric to cut. Nonetheless, I am excited to be sewing this pattern. I need to update jackets in my current wardrobe.
I hope your sewing weekend was productive!
