Green wool suit finished
I really had very little left to do, in order to finish the jacket in the green wool. Here is the lining, being stitched in by hand.
Here's the interior of the jacket before I sewed on the buttons.
Here's a close-up of the running dog buttons I choose.
And here's the jacket, all finished! I like it. But I haven't worn it yet. Maybe tomorrow. I didn't wear it today although it was cool enough, because I wanted to take a yoga class and that meant scrunching up my work clothes into my backpack after class and walking home in my exercise gear.
Finally, I had bought a pair of pants at Winners and they were too long, so I needed to do some alterations. I still don't have a pants pattern I like and these were such a bargain at $35 - lined wool! - that I bought them. Now I've just discovered that there's a flaw in the zipper but if I need to, I can put in a new zip and still I couldn't have made them for less.
