Robson Trench – day 10 progress

After a long weekend away I returned to the trenches (sorry!) today and as well as inserting sleeves and adding (mostly successful) buttonholes I have hemmed and trimmed and removed any stray basting stitches to tidy up the inside.

Sadly having seen them in daylight I have decided that the buttons I purchased are too bright, so a trip to the haberdashery is needed before I can get this finished.

But tomorrow I should have a new coat. ๐Ÿ™‚

    How exciting! Congrats too you- Early I know but for all intents and purposes it is ready to wear! Glad you are switching out the buttons instead of just leaving them! ~Laurie

    It’s Gorgeous! I want one!

      I bet you could knock one up in a weekend … and still find time to cater a small wedding (not to mention saving a life or two should the need arise!)

        Lol, maybe, but don’t get too many weekends off. I’m on with making a toile for a dress at the minute, it’s taken me about 5 hours so far, but think I’m ready to make my real one.
        What’s your next challenge going to be?

    I just put up a couple of vintage trench coat patterns up for sale in my Etsy shop. Between you and Amanda sewing up beautiful coats, I’m thinking maybe I need to reconsider and keep one of both of them. Your coat looks great. I really like the color, too. Finding the perfect button might be a challenge. Good luck with that.

    Wowee! This is looking SO awesome! I am really excited to see you modelling it when it’s all done because it looks amazing from the sneaky peek photos! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Well done! Loved your trenches – pun! Looking forward to seeing the coat in action!
