Using some of my stash fabric, and trims to make an item that I will wear. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a versatile pattern for a short coat or "Car coat" as we used to say. I really like the double collar.

Q&A with Lori Liang

Scheri Manson asked:
Another great project. Really sharp car coat. Love your attention to detail such as fit, fabric, design, finishing and couture details. Keep them coming :)
Lori Liang answered:
Thanks again, your affirmation is appreciated!
maggiesc asked:
Very pretty jacket, the fabric looks very similar to a jacket I used for one of my projects, is it linen?
Lori Liang answered:
It is a silk fabric, but it has the feel of a cotton. I was told by my friend who teaches textiles that iit is a novelty weave. It looks a little bit like a tweed.
