Tailoring Your Coat Front, Part Two
Here's how I did it (note that this method is Sharon-approved!). I stitched my two pieces together on the princess seam. (Here's my tutorial on princess seams, FYI.) Then I trimmed the interfacing very close to the seam allowance with applique scissors.
And, for good measure, here's a video on sewing the catch stitch! (Note: I've also seen this stitch called a cross stitch and a herringbone stitch.)
Your next task is to cut out the front piece (A) in your hair canvas.
Stay stitch around the seamlines on the hair canvas.
