How Not To Make Split-Falls


We spent the entire day practicing split-fall fronts. My first attempt actually turned out pretty well:



This is how not to make them:


Essentially, I had sewn the flap (or bearer, as it’s actually called) going the wrong direction – opening over the hip rather than the center front. But oh well; that’s what practice in calico is for right?

Fortunately I’ve got lots of extra fabric for my breeches, so if it comes down to it I can do another practice with split-falls in the fabric before making them up properly. The end!
