i bought two yards of each before i had the colors planned out- turns out im barely using the blue so that prolly could have been 1/2 a yard. Tongue i still have plenty left over too, id say youd be safe with 1.5 yards of both the shell and the lining. (oh! also, thats kinda ignoring the grain. i wanted the words on the white going every which way. so you might need 2 yrds if your pattern is one-directional.)

thanks! i found the fabric at SR Harris in MN. its a huge fabric warehouse like the one they go to on project runway. Its Juicy Couture fabric, surplus from something they made i guess. Smiley

hey kids! so ive finally gotten around to going to the fabric store and finding fabric i like so im back to work on this thing. im almost done with the exterior one. then i need to make ANOTHER one to use for the lining (but that one should be easier, no extra flaps or straps.) you know- this is actually REALLY EASY. if you can sew well enough to put in a zipper that is really the hardest part. Smiley  i chose to kinda stick with the original color scheme without using actual flags. my white fabric tho has black lettering kinda printed on it all messy like- it says "dirty england" all over it Smiley i like the punkness i gives it. Oh! and i took the hard road and did the patchwork sleeve. worth it. to the pictures!

lookin good! im gonna hit the fabric store on thursday. i think my color choices are gonna be limited by what colors of grosgrain i can find. :/ do you think bias tape would work just was well? also, i think im gonna put a few snaps on the sholder and make that long sleeve removable..i think id wear it more as a summer vest/top then a arm-pit-drafty jacket. but i wanna keep the option for when im feelin' edgy.. Wink

oh oh oh! something just came to me! when it says "a'cheval", which the other thread determined meant something like "of the horse" on the hemline maybe they meant sewing a horsehair braid along the hem to support the shape of the garment and make that little tail part stick out more! ( horsehair braid can be bought in the notions section and is a polyester strand that is stiff and is usually added to the hemline of crinolines and wedding dresses)
eh?eh? youd just tuck it in there as you line the edge with grosgrain. if you're using a heavy fabric or a thick interfacing this wouldnt be necessary of course. Smiley
