All This And Pockets, Too!

The next phase for the new coat is underway. Here you see the back and the two front parts along with some lining on the far left.

Most of this day's effort went into the pockets. It involves sewing one piece of pocket lining to the front, then cutting the actual pocket hole inside the narrow part you just sewed, and then stuffing it all in before you sew of the back of the pocket. Then come the flaps, which have to be carefully sewn together, turned right side around, and then pressed before topstitching the flap just above the pocket. They don't have buttonholes, yet.

Next come the sleeves. Stay tuned...
