Way back in November I started a coat-making workshop at the Clapham Sew Over It store. Things started well over the four weeks but since the course ended I haven't had a moment to spend on it. I hope to get back to finishing the 1960's coat in the new year.

|Assembling the many pattern pieces|
|Cutting the lining|
|Laying out the coat outer shell - didn't want to make a mistake with this expensive fabric!|
|The centre back seam with the interfaced back and side sections|
|The back yoke pinned ready for sewing|
|The bust dart cut ready to be pressed open on the ham|
