Gratuitous Coat Post

I've been toiling away on my abbey coat, and am nearing the end. Hopefully, I will finish it this coming week but in the meantime wanted to share some shots of the inside. 

Padstitching the collar

I added pockets on the princess seam!
Also you can see the bound buttonholes here

Set in sleeve using a bias strip


Sunback lining

So close to done!
Off to go sew some more 
Pin It Now!


  1. It looks so good! Happy sewing!

  2. Wow, this is going to be very nice!

  3. I've got to do some research about bound buttonholes. I want to try them but need to wrap my head around how they work in relation of lining and facings etc. I can do welt pockets so can't be too hard... can it?

    1. there are a million online tutorials about it! So easy, you just have to make a little window in the facing for the buttonhole

  4. Oh it looks so good! I love the colour, all that work will really make it a special garment to wear.
