Back vent and hem details
Lining Pleat detail
I did read a lot before sewing this coat, I posted some of the links already, but just to keep it next to the photo so I’ll know what to do next time.
Nameless tutorial 2 shows how the hem facing is done: http://www.fashion-incubator.com/archive/nameless_tutorial_2/
Have a look at Tany’s lining next to back facing and hem facing and lining.
Back vent and hem – should have sewn the hem by hand a little looser, I think I can see the sewing from the right side…
Piping and snaps
I made the piping myself and it is one quick and easy project: http://mirelap.wordpress.com/2010/07/14/seeeeewing/
Belt – I have to admit I’m not proud of this one…meaning, I would have liked to find some cool belt bucket or do some leather macrame, something special…oh well..
Sleeves in this pattern were too short for me, problem solved thanks to the cuffs:
Note to self: Leave a lot more hem allowance on the sleeves! Lot: like 15 cm more. When I added the shoulders, the sleeves got shorted with the thickness of the shoulder…Lucky my design called for cuffs, lucky I made them big.

After all, I ended up buying mine, time was of the essence.
Hope there images do not give away too much and the design will still be saved for the book!
