Houston, We Have a Problem

The fabric for the red coat arrived last night. But there is one small problem. It' s not red. It's maroon or deep plum. The pattern is fine, but the colour is not what I wanted. I wanted really bright and striking. The plum will work, but it's just not what I had planned. But at this stage, with the event at the end of the week and no money left, I will just have to use it. Bugger.

The photo is a bit dodgy, it was windy and I was rushing, but you get an idea. Also, remember that this needs to have bit trimmed from down the sides of both front openings. I deliberalty made these a bit bigger to give me room for the second coat and to make sure it was bit enough.
