To make a long story short, I ended up with tailor chalk marks on the right side of my coat fabric. Yes the white color disappears with pressing/steam but no matter what I have done the imprint is still there, most obvious when you look down on the coat.
So instead of crying over ruining this beautiful wool/camel coating I've decided to use the wrong side of the fabric on the panels that I ruined.
Difference between sides is not extremely obvious
Here is what it would look like, I shaded the pieces that would show the reverse of the fabric by necessity (they have marks) and I figure to balance it I would make the tabs on the sleeves out of the reverse.
The right side of this fabric as you saw in one of my previous posts is fluffier almost like a velour.
So what would you do? I'm calling my solution a "design feature". Would you just use the reverse and call it a day?
Really this coat needs to be made, it has been weighing on me for far too long
