Sew – sew – quick – quick – sew

I have been making progress with my waterproof coats. After a bit of experimenting I am quite pleased with the neatness of my first working sample.

2015-05-08-00-14-11My first attempts were a bit faffy and not very neat – and I needed to work out a better, simpler method.

So now I am creating a small rolled hem round the edge first – still need to practice going round the outside curves – that’s REALLY hard!  Then I am cutting the fleece lining to fit the hemmed shape and adding a double hem to secure it in place.

I have never worked with this type of fabric before – it seems soft and pliable for the dogies – and the fleece will make it nice and cosy.

I am going to add a plain black belly band of some sort – not finalises it yet! – and 2″ velcro for the fastenings.

Samples should be ready next week
