My coat has taken a spot on the back burner. School is getting in the way, and there is so much yet to do that it is starting to be really daunting. Before I felt like that I did do some work in it. It’s been cut out (the outer fabric and a form of interlining of which I’m not sure yet how to put it in) and the outer fabric has been sewn -> without the interlining, a slight miscalculation. Now I have to solve that, but there isn’t really time to think about it right now.
While I was cutting out the coat, my dad thought it would be a fantastic picture moment. This may have been because I did not want to use pins and therefore took all the mugs and bowls from my parents cupboard to put on the tissue as pattern weights. Our pottery (can I call it that?) collection is fairly.. colourful, so it made a nice picture as evidenced below:
I also made a fairly large length of bias tape from the orange stuff (here), and although it didn’t really go as planned (there was a lot of cursing involved), I can now probably salvage a long enough length for it to work. The project is now in a laundry bin in its entirety and I’m afraid it will stay there for a while. School comes first.
