Elijah Boo, Here's One For You
As I said in my previous post, there was plenty of fabric left after making Nate's little jacket. Plenty. And it was pretty obvious what I would do with it, wasn't it?
Here's something I tried on this one to make the topstitching of the sleeves less difficult: As soon as I cut the pieces out, I pressed up the sleeves 3/8" on both the jacket and the lining. And then I ran a basting stitch. Which prolly wasn't necessary, with the good pressing, but what the heck. It helped a lot. This one went together much more quickly than the first one. Experience pays off.
So here they are, cute as a button, waiting for their buttons (which I hope to pick up early this week one day after work) and then I'll ship them off to their rightful owners.
What a fun weekend this has been!
