Great tater tots, I'm tired.
I did A LOT today. I added the sleeves.
Pressed the seams.
Tacked the seams down.
Added shoulder pads I made. Added the basting tape to the shoulders and front darts.
Cut out the lining.
Overlocked the lining. Assembled the lining. Pressed the lining. I even added a back part in a nice rough brushed wool.
I like doing that to the linings of things I make. I'm sure it has a name, but I don't know what it's called. I even stitched NVL into it.
Last but not least, I added the facing pieces and top collar to the jacket.
Whew. I still have to work that right side up, but at least its attached. I'll let the lining hang a bit more then Ill go on and start stitching it into the jacket.
The pockets I thought were going to be a piece of cake.
Why do I have to make things so complicated? I wanted some stability on the top of the pocket, so I lined it with grosgrain. I plan to do the same thing to the cuffs of the sleeves and the hem of the jacket.
But right now I'm cold and tired I have cramps and I need a shower. I know, too much information, but hey, you've read this far.
Tomorrow night is the event and if I can get the lining in, it hemmed and pressed and get the 3 button holes done, I'm wearing this puppy.
We will have to see....
