Winter Coat Progress Part 2

Other posts in this series: Part 1, Part 3, Part 4

Here’s part two of the parka making series.  At this point I’m through with cutting and most of the prep work so I’m full on into sewing mode.  I spent this entire past weekend sewing pockets, toggle straps, and actually constructing the majority of the shell of the torso.

These below will eventually become my toggle straps.  Hmm… toggles might be the wrong word.  I’m using buttons, but instead of having a button hole, I’m going to have a loop like just like a toggle closure.  Anyway, I made these out of the shell fabric.  I’ll sew them in sometime in the near future. Also pictured are the epaulettes.

I also decided to make all of the pockets.  Here you can see the two side hand pockets and one inside pocket in the lining.

This inside pocket is the perfect size for my iphone!

Next I sewed together the lower half of the shell.  Notice the fishtail hem!  There is no drawstring though, its purely decorative.

And last but not least, here’s the hood attached, complete with backwards epaulettes.

I’ll sew the button on after I attached the sleeve.

Next I have to sew in the front placket, add more snaps, sew in the zipper… maybe attach the sleeves, maybe work on the lining…
