Fabric for Small Newbury Coat

I finished the fabric in a rush before going to France and got round to taking photos this morning. It is a nice crisp morning and overcast so I tried lots of shots in the garden.
Yes it is striped. Different skeins of yarn dyed up differently. This is not me because, when I dyed three skeins together, one would often be very different from the other two and uniform thoroughout. The weft is different because that was all spun in 2011 at the 'do' and came from the same fleece.
Another view (wish I had ironed the fold out).

About Me

I am weaver and - -. I dye my yarns with acid dyes, I paint my warps, put fabric collages and stencils on my weaving. I have three looms, a 12 inch wide, 12 shaft Meyer for demos and courses, a 30 inch Louet Kombo which is nominally portable but has a stand, two extra beams and a home-made device containing a fan reed. And last a 32 shaft Louet Megado which is computer controlled, has a sectional warp and a second warp beam and I am the proud owner of an AVL warping wheel which I love to bits and started by drilling holes in. I inserted a device for putting a cross in. I have just acquired an inkle loom and had a lesson from an expert so I can watch TV and weave at the same time. I am interested in weaving with silk mostly 60/2 although I do quite a bit with 90/2 silk. I also count myself as a bookbinder with a special interest in Coptic binding.
