In between shooting BB guns and Taylor’s softball practice (in 90 degree temps!), I managed to get in a bit of sewing time. It seems like I’m making slow, but steady progress on this jacket. Today I finished the banding and attached it to the jacket:
I wound up cutting out the section of the jacket where I wanted the banding to go. I think that it gives it a more finished appearance. The banding does make the jacket a bit stiff – I think that it’s mostly because I didn’t trim the seam allowanc. I’m going to have to see if I can do this before I go any further.
I also attached the facing to the jacket. Now I have the sleeves (more bands on the sleeves), the binding (which I am dreading) and a buttonhole to go.
