Winter Coat Progress Part 3

Other posts in this series: Part 1, Part 2, Part 4

I’ve made a little more progress on the coat.  I still haven’t gotten to the zipper like I said I wanted to, though.  I realized that the zipper is going to have to be one of the last things I do to get all of the seams to line up the right way.  So I did almost everything else.

Here you can see that I’ve added the toggle straps and part of the pieces for the front placket.

After this I decided to finished the lining.  I wanted to create a knit cuff that would attach to the sleeve lining for extra warmth and wind blocking under the regular sleeve shell. I was lucky enough to find a double knit wool that matches the shell fabric perfectly!

Here are the cuffs attached to the rest of the sleeve lining.  I decided to use a quilted poly satin for the lining fabric. It will provide warmth, but will also be smooth enough for me to easily slip my arm through.

This is the sleeve lining inside out so you can get a better idea of what it looks like.

Next I attached the sleeves to the body lining which I had sewn together previously.

A loop for hanging.

Looks so cozy! I still have not added the sleeves to the shell, but I went ahead and sewed the hood lining into the hood of the shell.  Its going to be a bit more bulky and annoying when I get to sewing on the shell sleeves, but whatever, couldn’t help myself.

Next up: Sewing the sleeves of the shell, adding snaps to the front flap, sewing in the zipper, sewing the last bits of decorative top stitching, sewing on the buttons, and finally finishing the hem.  I’m hoping if I devote one more full Saturday to this, I’ll be able to finish it completely.  Unfortunately, fashion week is coming up and I’ll be working this entire coming weekend, so please be patient!

EDIT: I just realized that this is my 100th post!  Woo hoo!
