Ultimate Six Frock Coat - the fabrics start to arrive

I’ve been slogging away on this Six Frock Coat for months, nay years now! But I AM getting there, and this year will be the year it’s gonna HAPPEN!
Fabrics 2, 3, 4 and 5

Just to show things are gathering a pace, here is a delivery I received this week from my wool dyeing supplier of four out of the fourteen fabrics I need: the Purple Felt (fabric 2), Green Felt (Fabric 3), Peach Wool (Fabric 4), and Red Felt (Fabric 5).

As you can see from the illustration above, it represents a substantial part of the body of the coat.

The other wools and felts are in the pipeline and should arrive very soon, and the work towards the more complicated fabrics is coming together nicely.

I don’t think it will be too long before I can start thinking about making my coat . . . I can’t wait!
