Spring Coat - Progress Report 4

This is the last progress report, if you missed the previous ones - one and two and three

Today's post is just some finishing details, like the back of the bound buttonhole on the facing.  I used fusible interfacing to stitch this and fused it to the wrong side.  Works wonderfully.

The final detail, piping at the front facing.  I have seen this on many tailored jackets out in the blog world and it is such a nice detail.  Well, I don't know what I have been waiting for, this was easy to do and the impact is huge (at least I think)

Tomorrow, I will take pictures in my new jacket, might need an umbrella according to the forecast.  Then on Monday, head over to Mood Sewing Network to see the jacket.

Thanks for all your comments on the progress of this jacket.  I am thankful for the Tailoring book, it was full of pictures and I really felt like I understood so much more during this jacket construction.
