Firefighter Red Sophia coat
The pictures are a bit overexposed but trust me, this coat is red and not orange:
The pocket tab I was talking about in my last post connects the seam allowance of the pocket bag with that of the front facing, which means I cannot fully pull the pockets inside out. I think the purpose of these tabs is to keep the pockets bags from flipping to the back of the coat.
Quite unusually, the pocket facings are to the back/to the bottom of the pocket bags. Fortunately, I understitched the front/top of the pocket bags, so the lining won’t be showing, despite the absence of a facing there. I didn’t quite understand the instructions for the pockets but these are in-seam pockets so nothing too complicated. It’s also the only issue I had with the instructions.
I’m willing to model the coat, as soon as I have resolved its one issue, which I hope you can help me with. I mentioned in my first post that I had mistakenly applied the fusible interfacing to the right side of the sleeves hem. I noticed my mistake and removed the interfacing, but have yet to find a way to get rid of the glue residue:
Any idea how to do this without damaging the fabric, which has a nap?
