DMK Peter pan Collar Coat Sew-A-Long: Day 2
Did you get yesterday's sewing completed? I hope so! If not no worries, the great thing about this sew-a-long is that it will be on this blog ready when you are. If you click on the "Tutorials" tab at the top of the page, I've added a sew-a-long category. When this sew-a-long is completed I will add a handy little link button so it will be easy to find whenever you need to.
I read in yesterday's comments that some of you were sewing and sewing and actually completed your coats! Yay YOU! I hope you'll still follow along, and maybe I can share some tips that will make things easier for next time. If you have already completed your coat please add it to our Sew-A-Long Flickr Group! I know Karen would love it if you added it also to her Dear My Kids Flickr Group.
Ok, let's get going on today's sewing. We are going to finish up the outside of your coat and then I'm going to leave you homework to also do the lining. The lining will sew up so much quicker than the outside because you will already have done it once. I swear it will!
Now, my friends, put this aside and start at the beginning and take your lining pieces and complete the lining.
I guess I was wrong when I said yesterday would be the heaviest sewing day.
Stay tuned tomorrow and we'll attach our lining to our outside. Don't worry it isn't as confusing as it looks! :)
If you have any questions or comments leave them. I read every one of them and will do my best to answer them in the comments section, or in tomorrow's post. If you left a question yesterday and don't see the answer check yesterday's comments.
So, what did you neglect yesterday so that you could sew?
See you tomorrow! :)
