A tiny update

Hi all,

Last weekend I went to my own home and when I went back to my parents placevagain I brought my sewing machine :)

I took the coat with me and made some progress.


What is left to do?

- trace pattern of lining
- cut lining pattern and fabric
- sew lining together
- add lining to coat
- add shoulder pads
- add button holes
- add buttons
- remove all basting threads 
- and give it a final press.

I'm so glad the outer coat is almost finished :) It's nice to see actually a coat!

At the moment I'm not very active with reading and commenting to other blogs, I hope you don't mind! I still need a lot of rest. I hope to be more active in a while.

  1. Hey, wat goed om dit te lezen! Rustig aan en veel plezier met de jas, hij ziet er prachtig uit. Die stukken aan de mouwen en de zoom maken hem heel chic, maar niet op een 'stijve' manier.

    1. I really need some distraction. So I thought sewing would be a good thing to do. Just an hour a day, nothing to much, but it gives a good feeling.

      thanks for you kind words!
