One of the classes this year was Tailoring, and I am making a coat. The class is over, but my coat isn't quite finished yet. I gave my pattern a very big collar and lapels.
|The sleeve being sewn.|
|The back lining.|
|I did a prick-stitch around the edge of the pocket flaps.|
|Attaching the welt and pocket flap.|
|Cross stitching the pocket allowances to the canvas.|
|The top of the pocket bag, with the allowances nicely secured.|
|The cross stitched edge is the front one. The back edge hangs free.|
|From the back.|
|And from the front.|
|Prick stitching the seam where the lining is sewn to the facing.|
I can't proceed further without instructions from my tailoring teacher, so I'll finish this when I get back to school. I'm really looking forward to wearing it.
