The first image shows the actual Royal Blue color. This coat is very long so I couldn't fit the whole thing into a good quality shot. The seams were a nightmare because I neglected to do the increases/decreases away from the edge (no ditch). This I will never do again ! However, with the techniques I learned from 'Seaming Handknits' I was encouraged to look out this UFO and finally seam it without the resulting big holes, lumps and bumps. I'm happy with the result. I hope you like it too :-)

Beautiful! So glad it is out of your UFOs and you can wear it proudly. Your seaming is great is spite of not moving the shaping away from the edge stitches. In the future it will be soooo much easier. Seam on! Chris
