I need to sew my ass off tomorrow, and see if I can't get the yardage for the coat finished within the next three days. I'm still not done sewing purple fabric. I'm getting there, though. I should be done with that tomorrow.. then I have a whole day of ironing ahead of me, and I can finish the yardage. After it's done, I need to iron on some stabilizer to keep it flat so it doesn't warp/buckle after the garment is sewn. Otherwise, it'd look like I'd just sprayed glue on myself and rolled around in Barbie's remnant bin.
Until then.. this is where I am now
And here's a sneak peak at the yardage. I need to iron like a mofo, but you can kind of see where it's going now. And why I needed 60 yards of lipped gold piping. It's running horizontal-ish in the pic, but I will be using it for vertical stripes. Should look awesome once it's all put together and ironed out
