Darn! The rear view is blurred. And it has gotten too dark outside to retake.
Sleeves and before welts.
Welts. Before adding the pocket lining.
After the pocket – straightens up the edges nicely. Hmmm….looking at the photo, the top welt looks wonky, but in reality, it is fine.
I ended up not binding the outside edge. I cut off an inch or so all around the perimeter, and cut out the lining from the hem allowance. I turned a bit more than an inch for the hem. Before topstitching the hem, I turned the raw edge in 1/2 inch.
My daughter thinks it’s too much in the front. I agree. I think it would have been better if I had not used spray adhesive on the lining. The glue changed the hand, making the lining – well – crinkly feeling.
My husband, on the other hand, thinks it is fine.
I could have cut a size extra-small all around rather than just in the neck/arm area where I cut a size small. According to the pattern measurements, I should have cut a medium. No. Extra small.
What do you think? Wear this when visiting family in DC for the holidays? Or opt out.
