I didn't take pictures as I went along because there are so many great step-by-step pictures on the web on how to make a coat and I am no expert. This was my first, and I'm pretty proud of it. There were a few minor hiccups along the way.
I really wanted to make a ton of things on my break, but only managed to make my sister a knit t-shirt for her birthday last June ( forgot to take pictures of her in it) and hemmed a pair of The Boyfriend's jeans. And the coat of course. I still owe my sister a dress and have to hem more pants.
Including the 2 muslins, the coat took about a week. I didn't work on it every day and I took FOR-E-VER cutting out the coat. That took a couple of days. Then I sewed the lining in a night. It took 2 more days to put together the coat. Last night I finished the coat by making self-fabric covered buttons using vintage button kits, buttonholes and sewing on the buttons.
The Boyfriend took pictures today, but I CAN'T FIND THE CORD THAT TRANSFERS PICTURES FROM MY CAMERA TO MY COMPUTER. It disappeared like yesterday! UGG. So I can't show you pictures just yet!
I'm really bummed out, but when I find the cord I'll post ASAP.
Sorry for the picture-less post.
