Adventures in coatmaking - the skirted coat
Place buttons. I realized after sewing a couple of buttons,
that they really should be closer to the edge than they are on this picture,
so that the coat closes neatly and doesn't gape open.
Finish off the front/facing of the coat. Topstitch around the front/facing pieces.
I should have lined the facing pieces with interfacing to make them sturdier - note for next time.
Put the coat sleeves and lining sleeves in place at the shoulders.
With right sides together, sew the lining sleeve to the sleeve of the coat (at the cuff)
Turn right sides out.
Turn up hem on coat. Slip-stitch lining to coat.
