Mostly about sewing! However, I may wander off onto other topics from time to time...

Trench coat photos
I don't do photo shoots well...just not in my nature, I guess. But here's the final product!
Looking at the back photo, I think I sewed too much of the pleat closed at the waist. After the photo, I went back and released about 2 1/2" inches from the bottom of that stitching. Don't know when I can get another photo...
The upper pleat doesn't open too much, even with my arms crossed.
My hubby commented, 'That looks like a raincoat!'
To which I replied, 'Good! 'Cause that's what it is!'
eta...I fiinally went back and did the math. Given that the gabardine was on a crazy clearance sale, the entire coat cost less than $40.
