2014 WINTER COAT PROJECT...

...working hard on knocking down my "FINISH LINE LIST":

.  Padstitched undercollar
.Padstitched and taped lapel
Thanks to a tip I got from Erica Bunker on using my machine's serpentine stitch

in a grid formation, padstitching takes just a fraction of the time it would take to hand stitch.  Now, finally, on this totally cozy rainy day I'm ready to move on to construction...

  3. That serpentine stitch technique is Kenneth Kings favorite process. I love it..its in his book Cool Couture and his Tailoring CD. I think Erica did mention that on her post for the Peacoat. The process does speed things up tremendously.
