Coat update

Hi there! So, my coat is almost done! I have to make three bound buttonholes, apply front facing, lining and do the hem. Unfortunately I can work on it only when the little one sleeps!!!
I went to one of my favorite fabric shops to get the buttons...I've found some vintage ones...very big things!!! Also I've found some great wool crepe, in dark green for € 5,00...a huge cut!!!So I'll make a dress out of it!!!

Have a great week end! Ciao!

  1. Hi Patrizia!
    I am looking forward to seeing your coat. How did things go with the inside of the bound buttonholes? That is where I seem to be having trouble- when I attach the facing at the inside.

  2. Hi...well I did that yesterday....was not sooo easy, and it doesnt look very neat either!! Anyway, I covered everything with facings!!! I'm almost done, hopefully I'll be over with it by the weekend!

  3. So I guess the inside is really the trickiest part? Good thing it is on the inside then! Practice will probably help in time.
