|Not pictured: me laughing giddily in the sewing room at 10 PM.|
I haven't ordered the heavyweight thread they use at the factory yet, so I'll be piecing with regular sewing thread and topstitching with gold jeans thread. I thought it would look snappy on the green canvas and help with visibility, since all the vest cuts I got were dark colors. (The others are black and chocolate brown.)
Depending on how much I get done at a sitting, I will post the work on this vest in several posts over the next week. Next up - sewing the shell. I have time set aside for this on Tuesday evening and I can hardly wait.
