thank goodness the zippers were sewn in with stronger thread, because those were the only seams that didn't need re-sewing! Just the kind of sewing project I like.....NOT! Altho easy enough with my serger.
I am still working on my daughter's trench coat, but since DD the eldest was home for a week (and available for fitting) I made a quick little summer dress for her using Butterick 2179, view B w/out the jewels:
She picked a pretty blue for the round collar, and a blue/white print for the dress. I'll post a picture as soon as she sends me one since I was hand-sewing the facing as she was leaving out the door :-)!
