Almost done...

Hello! I've been holed up in my sewing room in case anyone has been wondering where I am... This has been a fun project, but it has seriously taken every spare moment of my time this week.

Joshua just came over this morning and I was able to check the hems on him before I hem the jacket and pants.

To do still:

-sew waistband on (it is just basted on for fitting)
-sew waistband buttonholes
-sew 6 pants buttons on
-hem pants
-hem coat sleeves and sleeve lining
-press entire outfit

Hopefully I can get some pictures of him in the finished suit this evening. He's going to look pretty dashing!


  1. It looks great!! I have yet to attempt clothing. I'm new to sewing and am in awe of people who sew clothing!

  4. Very nice! What type of cloth are you using? It looks like a woven wool twill? Hard to tell.
