Simplicity 2508 – Part III

The sleeve ruffles are done – aren’t they adorable? They will be topped by a buttoned tab, one of my favorite details.

The finishing was very easy as they are fully lined. Although I will probably be using an aubergine lining in the coat I used black here since it will likely be seen and I didn’t want it to compete with the rest of my outfit.

I have the next two days off so I should make some really good progress on this.

    Oh they really are cute! Line drawings and pictures are one thing, but sometimes you need to see it made up to really appreciate a design detail.

  2. Yes, they are adorable. What a great detail!

    I meant to ask yesterday-can you give me topstitching advice for the rounded-end tabs? Yours is very smooth and even-do you reduce your stitch length and/or use any device to keep your stitching line so exact?

    Looking good Gigi! Did Winnie or Ricki help?
