The orange wool wearable test I’m doing before I make my leopard collar jacket has continued to come together nicely.
I made the upper collar-lining unit yesterday. Then I pinned it to the under collar-jacket unit, and stitched the units together in one long seam.
Pinning and stitching this long seam is always exciting and a little suspenseful for me. I’ve done a lot of work up to this point. Then I stitch, press, and grade the long seam. There’s the moment when I turn my project right side out and see it transforming into a garment. Boy, do I need that moment!
This practice run has gone so well that I just might finish it and wear it for real.
I’m going to take this just as it is to my next Coat Craze class at Treadle Yard Goods Nov. 2. I’m wondering about interfacing the sleeve and jacket hems, anchoring the two units so they don’t shift, and finishing attaching the lining.
While I wait for the next class, I can choose my next coat pattern to tackle.
Yes-more coats are coming!
