The trench has sleeves

September 28, 2011

So there’s a little icon on the right hand side of my blog indicating that I signed up for the Trench Sew A Long in June 2010. This means I’ve had this trench coat hanging over my head since then. I got it all cut out and then my cat got sick and my husband’s grandfather passed away, and we adopted his cat, and my first cat got better, and the house was full of family…oh and then I got promoted and have been running full tilt ever since.

But I finally made progress on the coat and, after several tries as usual, I got the sleeves on it.


As of last night, I’ve also added shoulder pads and finished the lining and pinned it in place. Now I just need to do the belt loops, sleeve features, hemming and buttons and buttonholes.

…I may never get it done.
