Sneak peek at the Sunshine Coat!

A quickie this week as I am in the home stretch of my friend’s present; just the lining to attach before my work is done. The lining pieces have been cut out and pinned together – all that remains is to machine sew them together and insert the lining into the coat.  I will be…
