‘Tis not pressed, has only a pin holding the neckline in place but …. ’tis done!
Finishing off bits and pieces.Catch-stitched the outer fabric.Unpicked a little of the side seam and inserted the ties.The lining sewn down.
Finished! It does need a good steam.Details I liked.Centre back seam and 2-3 tiny darts either side of the CB.The side ties, an alternative to belting the entire coat.I even think I could wear the neck open.
Things not yet done – button for the neck, hook and eye on the inside to hold the under coat piece.
