I have finished. Hooray!
Leather trim was an interesting option. But...
- I have limited knowledge of sewing leather.
- Though at times, I fly without a net, the previous mistakes made me cautious.
- There is probably a great way to make lapped 3/16th inch seams with leather, but I don't know it.*
- I was able to cut the new piece from my wool/cashmere scraps with just one splice.
|two remnants lapped|
Here you can see how much I relied on pins to insure a decent lapped seam.
The rest of the construction was easy, fun, and I am happy with the result. The only change I made was to top stitch all of the hems
|such sweet pockets tho mine are a bit small|
It is done and I am glad to move on.
|the back: not too bad|
Yep. It's a wrap.
* tape or glue, maybe.
