Military Weskit Finished

Greetings! Sorry for the delay. Lots of small things jumped to the head of the line for events. The British army weskit fronts got buttons and buttonholes in my spare time. After that, It was buttoned--inside out, and pinned to the serge back from my previous attempt. After the side seams are fitted, the lining edges are turned under and whipped closed.

 The extra material on the front paid off--it covers the hip-hugging waistband on my old, patched overalls completely. The middle-aged largess is secure. The buttons are fixed as they were on the previous project, with linen tape. Wool serge serves as lining and back.

Next time we'll work one something more interesting. Check out those Regimental buttons!
