Vintage Vogue 2884 - Some progress

I spent Thursday and Friday in OKC with Claire Kennedy  working on my vintage coat.  I have the 2 piece front put together, the pocket inserted and instead of top-stitching, I'm doing a pick stitch by hand.  I'm learning so much in this class!  I've learned a better way to clip curves; instead of cutting out notches of fabric, I now cut slits to reduce the amount of fabric in a curve and to get the clipping to lie nice and flat.

I just finished my sleeves and thought I would show them to you.

Believe or not I lightened the crap out of these pictures to get even this much to show up.  LOL.  Click on the picture to see a larger version.

Here's a closeup of the pick stitch detail.

More to come...
