Face Off

This April, May, and now June I’m sewing along with Sherry at Pattern~Scissors~Cloth. A bunch of other talented seamsters and I are all making coats following the construction methods used in ready-to-wear tailoring. Mine is a Burberry-inspired trench coat, and here’s a reflection on my efforts to sew well.

Tonight. Me vs. the Buttons. Well, really the buttonholes. The buttons are perfectly wonderful.

Updates:

June 5th – Four buttonholes out of ten, and two buttons out of fourteen.

June 6th – Ten buttonholes out of ten, and eight buttons out of fourteen.

June 8th – Ten buttons out of fourteen.

June 9th – All done!
