So, my latest project that I've embarked on is a dirigible pirate ensemble. I was wondering if any of you out there have experience with making an overcoat. Are there any good patterns out there? I went to Joann's, but wasn't too thrilled with any I saw. Also, I'm looking for fabric suggestions, I'm thinking a medium weight canvas with a sateen liner.
The plan right now is to waterproof it after I finish, but I also have questions about that. I've been looking around and am thinking of a beeswax/mink oil finish but I desperately need some advice from someone who knows what they're doing. Anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated!
