The coat is coming along albeit slowly! I have lined the coat with cotton quilt batting and again hand stitched it into place.
The collar is attached – the neat thing about washed wool is that the felt can be left unfinished at the edges. At least I will try. Today I will add pockets to the front though all layers then will begin on the silk lining. I hope to have it finished by the onset of the cold and I know that I am cutting it very close.
