I spent a productive Sunday and part of today making lots of progress since my last post, as you can see.
I now have two units: the coat unit and the lining unit.
I slid the lining unit inside the coat to give you (and me) a sense of what the finished coat will look like.
I wish my photos could capture the richness of this deep turquoise lining against the speckled brown wool. I like this color combination.
What’s left to do?
- covering and inserting shoulder pads
- sewing on buttons
- hemming the coat and lining, and
stitching these two big units together.
So far, so good.
Back to work.
