Progress on James’ 18th c. suit. Actually, lots of progress, but on things that just aren’t things you take pictures of for your blog: black buttonholes on black fabric, interior linings sewn together, bias tape finishings. Blah.
However, due to photos of said progress being demanded, I’ve taken some for you, just a couple. One – proof that the frock coat now has two (count ’em, TWO!) sleeves with cuffs on them, and also half of the lining sewn together. Two – a pretty picture of my trusty Singer stitching on rows and rows of silver trim.
One more photo too, although not of James’ suit. These are new shelves! Look at all those boxes full of patterns and notions, all those hats on blocks, and other nicely organized things 🙂 It’s made a huge difference in getting things more organized in this so-called sewing room!
