Cotton Jersey Coat Hand Sewn

This is my new cotton jersey coat, entirely hand stitched with polyester thread, using the techniques I learned from the books by Alabama Chanin. And pockets! It’s got pockets!
I used the pocket technique described here, but with piping instead of a ruffle.
A few stitches here, a few stitches there, and eventually all the details are done. I love this process.

I’ve been working up to this project for a while now. I’ve been altering a long sleeved shirt pattern every time I make one. With a few more tweaks to the pattern, it’ll be a perfect fit. It’s still a little tight over the bust.

For the lining, I had  enough fabric in either orange or gray. I bought way too much of that orange, and I had to use it somewhere.
I’m so excited to finish this coat because this means I now have a pattern for a fully embellished one.

Here's a photo of my dog.
Thanks for looking.
