Sewing Project Update 6 (final): Tibetan Panel Coat
There are some flaws. The side vents have a disparity between the lining and the outer layers which causes the sides to not lie completely flat.
The decorative shoulder facing on one side is more wrinkled than the other. My seam ripper got a workout today because I failed to read through the directions as well as I should have. Other than those things, the project turned out as pictured! It was fun and I am plotting the next panel coat.
Panel coats are similar to swing coats or pea coats in the way they hang and wear. They are narrower than the aforementioned styles, but the general shape is of a swing coat.
Here's a full-length view.
Here is one of the final seams going in.
This is a view of the collar facing.
