I finally got around to fixing the green coat. It only took five minutes on the overlocker to trim the collar to the right shape. I spent the rest of the night sewing the trim back on. I love wool. Even though the collar had been narrowed, the trim still fit, I didn't have to cut it or make any major changes, just sewed it back on. I am now declaring this item of clothing officially finished, with nothing more ever to be done to it!!
