A look at the extent of my collection.
The front facing.
My customer asked for a bit of the lining to show around the collar and cuffs. The best way to do this is to create piping. Thankfully I had some thick yarn that would be perfect for the core of the piping.
(I got a new camera. Hence my fascination with taking a lot of pictures, including the soundtrack I was listening to at the time)
Ah, now we get to the meat and potatoes of the operation. Cutting out all the pieces on the main fabric. That was a LOT of cutting!
Here's the piping! It turned out very well... it should look very elegant when inserted into the seams!
This particular seam baffled me for quite awhile. I was worried it wouldn't properly fit together...
But I staystiched and clipped and eased and stretched all according to the instructions and what do you know -- it worked!
Laying out the lining...
Lining is almost done! Just have to add the sleeves! (Which are cut and sewn already)
Stay tuned for part three, coming after I return home on the 11th!
