Here is my latest project. I talked a bit about it on this post. The facing/hem/lining part did not turn out as slick as my mock-ups and I can't really figure out why. I will ponder and get back to you. Here are some pictures. I love the buttons. I think I'll sew them on as soon as I get some decent-colored thread. I have light green but that will not do. Comments are under the picture. All pictures are larger if you click on them.
The inside back of the coat. It is a 1" hem on the bottom. I think I like them longer than that. I'll have to change that next time.
Here is the back pleat I made to help out with shoulder rip out. I got the decorative stitch idea from Couture et Tricot. I've seen her do this several times on her jackets.
Here is the hem. I had to gather it because the outer fabric flairs quite a bit over the hips and you have to fold it up. I couldn't think of any other way to do this. Ideas?
Here is the hole where I turned it inside out. Once I am satisfies with how it hangs, I'll sew this up. I want to keep it open until I press everything.
The front. When they say fitted, they mean it.
The back. I think the wrinkle will go when I attach buttons.
I love these buttons.
Approximate placement of the buttons.
Inside lining of the coat. After I sew the buttons on and give it a good pressing, I'll see how it goes with my Burda skirt. They are both the same color green. I bought that fabric together because I thought it went so well together.
