Well the rest of the coat was easy enough, even though I tortured myself by doing felled seams which will be completely hidden by the lining, because, I guess, more waterproof? Dunno. My usual slipshod topstitching, meh, whatever that’s why I don’t go for contrast! Some of the tightly curved seams were a bitch to stitch, but with lots of pins and some judicious hand basting on the hood particularly, I got there.
I had to make up the pieces for the belt loops, [remember I lost 2 pattern pieces?] no one came up with the answer when I asked some weeks back, so I just winged it. This is the mac of good enough, it’s official. I’ll just have to mac do. Ahem.
Anyway, all done, now I just have to choose the fastenings. Which could take some time, and some serious boodle. And January. Sigh.
No decision about using fancy metal fastenings as per the pattern image, or fancy buttons, or discreet buttons, or dirty great press studs with decorative buttons sewn on top. And I have to find a buckle too…
At least the sewing is done, and I can start cutting out some SWAP items tomorrow/next year! Yay!
Happy New Year everyone!
