Progress made

 

I’m getting there, I made a mistake tonight and held my breath for a moment. Then I realised that it was only unpicking and sewing a new seam, nothing really dreadfully wrong (remember I have not a piece of fabric left). I corrected the mistake  prior to stopping sewing, so that I can start with inserting the sleeves tormorrow. The most difficult things are done. I’m very happy with the lapel collar. I used the technique as decribed in Threads no. 68 by Jan Schoen. An adapted version was published in SewStylish in 2010, which article is online as well.

Further I’m a bit sorry the design lines don’t show very well in this fabric. Still like it though, the fabric is very “me”.

It looks fabulous so far. I do know about those "holy cow" moments when you think something is terribly wrong and you wonder if you have enough fabric to fix it....

Can I add to the many compliments already made? Most aspects are covered and I agree that it is going to look wonderful. I do like that fabric though, is it a linen? The colour looks as if it will go with so many things. Yes, it up to your usual high standard: very well done.
