First steps taken

Well, I have no illusions about getting any serious sewing done before the summer holidays but I’ve started looking for and collecting materials.

After hours spent searching for a halfway decent fabric over the last few days I could’t believe my luck when I found this one on alfatex yesterday! I mean from what I read in different forums the original fabric has been extremely elusive so far and finding a good substitute is one of the major problems for those who tried replicating the coat!
The alfatex tweed looks a LOT like the original I think but I’ll let you know if it’s as good a match as it appears to be on the photo.

I’m slowly getting the impression that the buttons will actually turn out to be the biggest problem…
