Sadly, this post will have no photos, because I've misplaced my camera. I'm procrastinating from my coat though, so VOILA BORING POST!
But I thought I'd let you know on the progress of this bloody coat. I've named it the wooly coat, but I suspect bloody would be more appropriate, especially considering how many times I've drawn blood with all the pinning and trying it on mostly pinned.
Last thing you heard, I had the shell together, but it didn't fit quite right. I took in the back along the princess seams 1/2 inch each, and also the underarm seam on the sleeves. I think the fit is much better, and I didn't mess it up at all! I'd love to show you, but oops, no camera. *facepalm*
I've since attached the collar, which looks amazing, but you'll have to take my word for that, too. Today, I'm putting together the lining, and I'm nearly done. Just need to sew together the sleeves and attach them to the lining body. I love raglan sleeves; so much easier to attach!
I'm considering sewing on an inside pocket, but I can decide whether to do a patch pocket or a zippered welt-like pocket. Or maybe a zippered patch pocket!
I want this coat done, and I think I can finish it this weekend. I think? I hope.
Sorry for the lack of photos. I suspect I'll be off to buy a camera tomorrow, because even when I find mine, it's really on it's last legs.
Alright, back to work. Wish me luck! Happy sewing all.
