I’ve been holding onto the two remnants of fabric for a while and knew that when I do use them I wanted to used them together, print mix! My first autumn/fall (depending on where you’re from) make of the year, I had the perfect idea for the two pieces.
I pulled out the perfect pattern to complete my vision, Simplicity 8554, and got to work. I had more of the fabric with the white print, which I used for the body of the coat and the fabric on the left was only about a yard so I used it to accent the coat. I wanted to make view A which is calf length but since but since I was at the mercy of the fabric, I could only do View A or B. B it is then! it used up pretty much all the fabric I had and I tried to pattern match the pieces to the best of my ability given my dilemma.
All was not lost as it worked out perfectly and I finally got my print mixing done.
The trench coat turned out beautifully. With how close the colors are, it may take a miute to notice the two prints but once you know they’re there it makes all the difference.
Happy autumn/fall 2020!
