I have been working on the red trench, but I have hit a bit of a stand-still. I’ve been trying to do any of the small tasks like pleats on the lining, the ruching on the sleeves, etc. and it’s now down to the actual construction. My problem is the collar. Lapels and collars are the hardest part of sewing for me. Sleeves and pockets are just fine, but I have a hard time visualizing exactly what goes where when attaching the other parts. It always looks like it should be self-explanatory (these shapes match here, and these ones here), but it throws me every time.
And since I am not a person to have multiple projects on the go (I also don’t like to be reading more than one book at a time) I am a little stuck at the moment.
