Red coat continues

Then stops! After the sleeves were in, I liked it enough to make a few yards of piping in black wool and tack it round the front and collar stand. Its ready to have the facings put on. The piping is still seam allowance up in the photo below, and the one on the right is showing the strap head more clearly. There’s no structure inside in the sleeve head yet, so it’ll have maybe a small pad and sleeve head support. And there I have to leave it for a week to ten days as I need to go to London. If Spring continues in the take it or leave it way its started here, I might yet get to wear it before the hot weather.
