The Tweed Procrastination

I found a wonderful Danish pattern company last winter, ShopOnion. Ordered two patterns and took a long time to get going - the tracing of patterns, so many panels. And then... forgot to add the seam allowances, so coat too small, hanging forlornly on Shirley for weeks. Finally I added two front bands, extended collar and put in a zip instead of buttons. Any opportunity not to make buttonholes is a cause for celebration!

 Lined the collar with upholstery velvet.

The title immediately made me think of something I saw just the other day, my own private tweedlink, so to speak.
