I just inherited an enormous stash of fabric from a neighbor - it dates back to the 60's. It would fill about 10 of those 30 gal storage tubs.
It is full of stuff...lots of wools, jersey knits, searsucker ginham...
In any case I want to make my four year old a winter coat out of some of the corduroy. I have at least 5 yards in a bright red. Has anyone done this? I also have some 300 polartec fleece I plan on lining it with to make it warm enough.
I am trying to figure out a good pattern to use, and if it is possible to end up with something machine washable.
