Ready for Faux Fur Trim

I finished attaching the sleeve linings today.   I finished all the quilting and trimming and hand sewing the lining shoulders and side seams together a couple of days ago.    Lining is hard for me to work with since my sensory abilities are still messed up and lining doesn't have as much texture as the tweed.

All that is left to do is to sew the faux fur collar and cuffs on.   I haven't decided whether to put it at the hem as well, but it's very soft and pliable on a knit backing, so that would be simple to do.  I uploaded a number of photos of the work in progress to this Flickr set.   I'm much too tired for an elaborate post linking photos today so you can see what I've been up to there.

There are so many different options on the blogger.   I must have clicked the wrong button and disabled the ability to leave a comment.   You should be able to leave a comment now.


  1. I feel such guilt when I see these posts about my unfinished, hand-lined Chanel jacket. But its summer here! Looking forward to seeing your finished item.

  2. Terri - what a great tweed! So glad to see you back in the sewing room.

    And I have to add that I like that tunic collar from a couple of posts ago. It's a nice alternative to a turtleneck for winter and I think the collar frames your face nicely.

  3. I'm so happy to see you back! It's delightful to know that you are improving and sewing again! You continue to inspire with both your determination and your talent.

  4. It is beautiful and you look so stylish as usual. Glad that you are improving even though it may be slow.
