Inspiration Coat and McCall's 5247 - Part IV

Yesterday I spent the majority of my sewing time redoing things that didn't look good:

1. All of the tabs were ripped out and replaced with tabs that were a combination of the lining and fashion fabric.
2. Ripped out the sleeves and removed the excess in the arm hole area.
3. Replaced the 1/2 inch shoulder pads with 1/4 inch pads.
4. Remade the belt; it was too short by a few inches.
5. Removed the pockets and resewed the side seams.
6. Removed excess from hemline of the lining.

Additional work done:

1. Attached lining to sleeves.
2. Applied interfacing to the hemline of the coat.
3. Top stitched the front and collar.
4. Made button holes.

Today:

1. Go to thrift store to look for a buckle. I have searched the internet and stores. Can't find one that I like for this coat.
2. Hem the lining and coat.
3. Sew on buttons.
4. Tack lining to the shoulder and underarm seam allowance.
5. Attach buckle if I find one.
6. Press and I'm done.

I found your website through Pattern Review. Always love your reviews, but this coat takes the cake. Lovely!! Your site links completely absorbed my attention as I found more and more sources for my own design projects. I am completely envious of your access to Vogue Fabrics. My own dd has graduated from her Chicago university so I no longer have another reason to ship Evanston or the Roosevelt store. Happy New Sewing Year!!!
