Happy Saturday Afternoon everyone! It's SO cold and windy outside today, luckily I have plenty to do inside! Well, let's get back to our Mongolian Camel fur vest!! We are about to put the side seams together.
If you choose, there are several ways to finish the seam - I used my overlock machine to finish the edges off. No worries if you don't have an overlock machine, once you've stitched it on your regular machine, the seam will stay nicely put.
At this point the vest is in one piece and can be tried on, always FUN!
This vest just happens to fit ME! So, I put it on and checked it out and showed it off to whomever was in the house! Everyone liked it!
Okay, we're getting there! Next we're going to turn the armholes to the inside of the vest and stitch them down. We'll do the same for the front edges and the hemline. Then, we'll add the collar! We are also going to break our first rule of sewing fur - we are going to use the scissors! Can't wait!
