So on to WIP...I've put the coat together and have done a wee bit of decoration.
Here is the front and back.

The class directions said to sew around the edges to construct the coat and then turn it right side out and sew up the sides which would leave a raw edge on the inside......:(
I know that once the coat is on the doll this won't matter but I just couldn't do that....my mum would be rolling over in her grave if I did....she always said that the inside of a garment must look as good as the outside.
So even though it was a bit fiddly I sewed up the inside seams and finished it off. Then I did a quick tacking stitch along the bottom and up the side edge so that the lining won't slip down once the coat is on.
Now I just have to put all the elements together and finish off the doll.
Well that's it from me for today:)

p.s. Personal complaint....re. blogs that are on WordPress.com....sometimes it's impossible to leave comments unless you have a WordPress user ID and password...it is a real pain...and I do have one and it's still a pain. I usually give up. Rant over:)
