Why does my life seem so busy and I am not even "gainfully employed outside the home"?
I have been working back on the blue coat since I finished the dresses but I still have not managed to finish it yet.
I finished putting the lining pieces together and then attached the lining to the coat.
Then I machine sewed seam tape to the hem and hand sewed the hem up. I am doing it this way because the lining hem is not going to be attached to the coat hem - it will float separately because of the pleat in the middle of the back. I have to press the heck out of it now and finish the lining hem. Next will be some top stitching and then the buttons and I'll be done.
