A "New" Coat, Part Three
A New Body
Today I had some time to actually work on the coat! Beside cutting out all the suede pieces, I was able to get some of the major seams done. Yes, this photo is over-exposed! It is hard to get a good photo of black wool coat, or any dark colored garment for that matter.
The whole body is now put together, minus the collar and the sleeves.
I still need to decide which type of interfacing to use, and get the sleeve tabs made. Tomorrow looks like it will be a very busy day, as does the rest of the week. I'm not sure when I'll get back to working on the coat, but it can wait a little longer as I've lived without it this long. It will be done before the end of the year, that's not a problem, as I have all next week and no other major projects to work on. At least not any that I know about!
Today will be my last post until next Tuesday, as my family will be home for the holidays and we'll be sending time together. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas! Please take a few minutes of quiet time this holiday season and contemplate the real reason to celebrate the season, the celebration of our Savior's birth.
Parting Shot: She's In! My daughter had run-offs today for Fine Arts Competition in the Small Instrumental Ensemble category. Each school can only send three competitors for each category and four signed up for this one. She's very excited, as they were vying for a slot with another flute duet, a violin group and a trumpet group. They'll compete in January, so four more weeks of the same number!
