Off and On

My inner perfectionist took over for a bit last night and the collar and band came off the coat.  I trimmed as much off the ends as I could w/o messing with the actual collar, and cut a bias strip of hymo and painstakingly whipped it down to the already graded  collar/band seam allowance, then I put the collar assembly back on the coat.

It went in MUCH smoother, and the collar band stands up nicely.

So all I have to do now is catchstitch the inner band/facing seam to the outer band/coat seam and I'll be back to where I was when I got home from work last night.

Maybe I'll get the sleeves in tonight...

  1. Yay! So glad you decided to do what needed to be done. I'm sure you'll be much happier with it now.

    1. I just have to get myself worked 'round to accepting the inevitable... lol. I reminded myself of taking off the collar for the turquoise jacket a couple of years ago...and told myself if I could do that, I could do this... ;-)
