I need help!! ... deciding on pattern and how to finish long edges of camel coat.
Looking on pattern review, I'm leaning toward 5987, a pattern that's been made up beautifully by several gals:
Cozy winter white by Meg
Sharon's in a camel color. On her blog sharonsews.blogspot.com she includes a great tip on how to make a mitered corner by stitching on the diagonal. And she shows various ways of wearing this versatile coat.
Chic Black Wool by Nancy
Fresh, pretty green wool by Annie
Gray polar fleece by Claire, who uses a beautiful finish she calls a "Greek stitch", which I've not seen before, but it surely looks lovely.
