the next steps


after all the seams are sewn, we flatten them and comb out the wool on the inside
when you first flatten the seam, the wool has a space where the stitching is
combing joins the fibers, so you cannot see the seam, and it keeps the cold out!
when this is done, we hang the coat on a mannequin overnight and weight the hem
shearling being leather, and a natural product, has some give, and we want it to hang straight
here is the coat ready to put the tape on
