At the end of November, this is where I stood with my coat. The back was underlined, pieced together and the back stay was attached.
Today I did the preparation for pad stitching the front. Each front is sewn to its side front, the seams are catch-stitched down, the hair canvas is cut to size, basted on and the grid to follow for the pad stitching is drawn.
I used the information found in both Paco's Tutorial on the Great Coat Sewalong blog as well as Ann's blog. It was a great help to have this detailed info available. Thanks to both of you, Ann & Paco !
Next up - the actual pad stitching ...
