It’s finished! Just in time for the early winter we seem to be experiencing, I’ve finished my first mustard delight, v8146. I’ve already spilled the details of the alterations etc in a previous post ‘v8146 – nearly there‘, so now I can regale you with photos And I’ll throw in a few fun facts too.
Fun facts start now:
There was just under 5 metres of seam binding involved in my rendition of v8146. I think it looks pretty. I could have got away without finishing the seams with this fabric, but decided to bind certain seams just in case anyone ever gets a look at them.
The delightful lining was cut to match up and replicate on both the right and left sides.
Exhibit A: lining on one side
Matches Exhibit B, lining on the other side…
Oh yeah, and the lining at the cuffs also matches.
Here’s a look at the buttons (well a button anyway!) I sewed these on over the top of the magnets. This was a challenge to start with, but then I came up with some weird way to sew them on which worked.
And here’s the final product!
Let me know what you think!
Don’t you just love finishing a project!? It’s the perfect opportunity to start something new I’m now knee deep in a Beignet – can’t wait to finish! Of course
