I took a day off to relax then got back to the finishing touches today. It took just shy of 3 hours to finish everything! It's beautiful and me! I put the sleeves on, and the buttons. I washed it and its hanging to dry. NOTE TO SELF: this is a hand wash only item! washing it in the machine made it fray pretty bad. I definately need a surger!!! Im very pleased with the outcome and I have enough material left over to make another one. I think I just might and try to sell it. Well, here's the finished trench!
