Sewing distractions get in the way of my FSG 1963 wool coat assembly
Continuing to assemble my wool coat
I guess they are not really distractions as I am still sewing.
The sleeves are in. The instructions with FSG 1963 are very good about putting in the sleeves with a wool header to give the sleeve cap shape.
The Chinese wedding pocket is straight from Threads 63. It’s is very soothing to create the pocket edge decoration.
Coat Assembly: Hand stitching is the hallmark of a couture garment
I stitch the coat and sleeve hems by hand and attach the linings by hand also. These can be done by machine but I prefer the look, the hang of hand stitched. All that remains is top stitching and button holes.
The distracting projects have been making Pillow cases for a friend’s massage therapy. Bartering for massages. And clothes for Sasha dolls.
I lined the bodice and hand picked the under stitching at the neck.
