Its hard to sew when its so sunny!
I admit.....I set myself a deadline last week and I willingly broke it.
The weather since Thursday has been in the upper 60's and its been to good to waste. The thought of sitting in doors sewing every day after the winter we had, was to awful to contemplate!
but......... I am almost done with the jacket, the outside is finished apart from a major clean up and press (that will get rid of the stitching marks as well) and I am really happy with how it looks.....
The inside is still a hot mess as the fit was really off as it came together, I'm still not sure if thats because of all the layers or just the pattern, but it took a day or so to rectify...
I also had to catch stitching every seam down as they were not able to sit flat enough even with a lot of grading, and that took so much longer than I would have imagined!
So, I now have to make a new pattern for the lining, to reflect all the changes I have made, which will also give me a much better idea of what I did.....and let me share them more clearly...
The rain and colder temps move in tonight, which should help me get a second post up Thursday with a finished garment, so I can move on to a new project!
