So far, so good:
These are shoulder tabs (2 sets), sleeve tabs, back latch pieces, and pocket flaps.
Heh, heh...the tabs struck me as finger-like...I couldn't resist.
The pieces aren't perfect, particularly noticeable when they're all lined up next to each other, but I'm still happy with them. Even though the pieces are small, it took awhile to finish them since each needed to be stitched, trimmed, turned, pressed and topstitched. This fabric doesn't like to be turned - it seems a little velcro-like and wants to stick to itself rather than sliding over.
The pressing part went well thanks to my new
The lining is as assembled as it can be before it goes into the coat. It needs to be attached to the facing before the shoulder seams can be sewn and the sleeves set in. I'm hoping that having the lining and small pieces done will make it feel like the coat comes together quickly. That will help me maintain momentum. :)
