Finishing with a sleeve...

Ok, so I did actually add this sleeve to the toile last weekend (not even the one just gone!) but I've finally managed to upload the photos so I thought I'd best put it up to complete 'the tale of the toile'!

I think adding the sleeves is one of the most exciting bits of making a toile. Not the easiest, as sleeves need to be inserting with a bit of care to avoid accidentally adding creases or even pleats, but very satisfying nonetheless.

The sleeves this coat is going to have are a relatively plain two part sleeve, and in the final garment will have a button detail at the wrist:
It still needs to be tried on, but we're waiting for the final fabric samples to come in so we can do the fitting and choosing of fabrics at the same time.
