The Fur Jacket, Part Three
And Now for a Lining
I intended to cut out the lining Thursday evening, but looked at the pieces I had pulled out and none of them, even in combination was enough for a lining. I went back to the collection and found another piece, a nice burgundy satin. It is burgundy on one side and gold on the other. I thought that would work nicely, as it has a rich look to it.
Friday, then, was the day I got the lining cut out and assembled. I had a little time on Saturday to sew, so I got the lining stalled.
That leaves me with finishing the hems and sewing on the snaps today. I picked up the remainder snaps between coaching and the gym, after discovering I only had three, and needed five. The sleeves are waiting now for their hems, and with any luck, I'll be sewing on snaps this afternoon after I pick up the children.
Tomorrow, I should be able to show you the finished jacket!
Parting Shot: Almost Done. I'm almost done with the hood, too. It is further along than in this photo, as the knitting part is done, and I'll be blocking it later today.
