As a result the muslin will be too heavy, the wool might not go with the lining, and I have no idea what it will look like when it's finished. Why did I get blue crepe? I wanted purple. Fabric regret? A little. 4m at $20 a metre? Definitely. Have. Fabric. Regret.
So, the question is, continue in with an almost Navy coat with red lining, or sell the wool crepe on ebay and start again? OR, do I make the lady grey with the Navy lining, maybe put some red and white trim on there and make it a shipshape with a naval theme?
