But, back to business! Today is day TWO! It is the post about all the crazy handstitching: the lapels, the rest of the coat, the collar and the seams! I have NEVER done so much of it!
|No tailor ham around, so I improvised. I actually find it very relaxing to handstitch in front of a movie or TV series.|
|Here, you have both lapels that have just been steamed. With a close up, you'd see that the little green things on the grosgrain are crocodiles! I will have hidden crocodiles on my coat!|
|Other pieces for which I handstitched the interfacing. At that point, I started to become annoyed...|
|Catstitching of ALL the seams! When I say all, I really mean all... It's crazy work, but so much worth it!|
I haven't documented those steps as much as the others because they lasted weeks and weeks. That is mainly why you only have the end results here. But I have more for tomorrow! Day 3 will be about the pockets, the sleeves, and putting everything together!
Blog to you tomorrow ;)
