As I declared on Friday, over the weekend I THREW myself into catching up on the Minoru sewalong with Tasia. After two hours on Sat and about five on Sun, I’m almost up to date. Tonight I’ll be finishing off the lining and putting it into the coat. My new sewing room is a joy to work in! Here’s a few pics from the work in progress.
I knew I would like the combo of grey corduroy and electric blue polkadot lining but I didn’t know I would FALL IN LOVE with it.
Here’s another pop of colour in da hood. Yes that’s right – da hood. Don’t judge me.
I used Amy’s excellent tutorial to install side pockets using leftover lining material.
By the way, have you seen Karen’s Minoru? It’s adorable. I love the front pockets she’s added.
Anyone else doing the sewalong? Have you experienced any tricky bits? I’m not sure my ‘concealed’ zipper in the hood has come out too well but I’m thinking I’ll have it out most of the time anyway. π
