The Loden Coat Sleeve, Part 2

Article Image

The pattern work is done and it’s time to cut the fabric and construct the interior facing and sleeve.

Cut the coat body pieces from the wool, and the armhole facing from lining fabric. In the examples shown, I used muslin to represent the wool coat fabric, and a black textile to represent the lining fabric.

Sew the side seam on the armohole facing, and sew the shoulder and side seams on the coat body.

Topstitch the facing to the armhole 1/4 inch from the armhole edge. Mark the red topstitching line (indicated by the arrow) and two other topstitching lines, each 1/4 inch apart.
