Firstly, I've sewn the front and side front together and then added the welts. This is my fist encounter with fake pockets and I think they look quite good!
Next it was onto the back pieces...
And then joining the front to the back...
|This is the front facing joined to the side lining|
And then I decided that it was time to come out of hibernation and put the sewing down for a bit! There isn't much more I can do before having the jacket fitted. I need to try it on and make any alterations before inserting the sleeves and completing the lining. Then it will be a case of joining it all together and adding the collar.
I still need to find a nice button, which is proving difficult. I might wait until the Knitting and Stitching Show at Harrogate in a few weeks to find the perfect one.
But I'm excited with my progress as I want to get on with making a dress for Christmas!
