Tilton, New Hamp...
My first attempt at sewing a coat/jacket. The outer fabric is corduroy and the coat is lined with some flannel from my stash. I collected the buttons over a few months, every time there was a sale, I bought a pair of theses buttons. The buttonholes were a big challenge as my machine didn’t like the bulk of corduroy layers with interfacing. At one point, it semed that all my work is going to go waste due to the buttonholes but I’m glad that I was able to make them all. After wearing it for a few hours and carrying shopping bags, the sleeves are wrinkled here which I think will be an issue with this fabric. Got a lot of compliments from strangers,appreciation is always encouraging!
