The brown jacket is nearly done.
The facing for this kind of jacket goes from one neckline down the front, across the side and back, across the other side and up the other front to the neckline. It is pretty easy to apply unless you sew the neckline first and when sewing the long facing around the rest of the jacket you discover that you have totally twisted the facing into a Mobius strip that nothing but a seam ripper can cure. In situations like this it is a bad idea to set the item aside to fix later because chances are you won’t. I grabbed the ripper right away (new behavior for me) and fixed it in about 10 minutes. Now for some trimming and clipping and then some buttonholes and buttons.
