Gratuitous Coat Post


I've been toiling away on my abbey coat, and am nearing the end. Hopefully, I will finish it this coming week but in the meantime wanted to share some shots of the inside.

I added pockets on the princess seam!
Also you can see the bound buttonholes here

  3. I've got to do some research about bound buttonholes. I want to try them but need to wrap my head around how they work in relation of lining and facings etc. I can do welt pockets so can't be too hard... can it?

    1. there are a million online tutorials about it! So easy, you just have to make a little window in the facing for the buttonhole
