Sewing live! Vogue 8648 trims and fastenings

Heading for the finish line now. The coat is hemmed, the velcro has been added and the hat is finished and just needs a little decoration.

Instead of using ribbons to decorate, I’m using more of the cotton fabric. Have cut a big strip to make the neck bow, a much smaller one to create the knot of the bow and a medium sized one to gather for the hat decoration.

The buttons are decorative and the coat actually fastens with a narrow strip of velcro.


Top tip time – to stop your buttons going everywhere while you sew, use a pin with a head bigger than the button’s hole to secure them to your pincushion.
