Mitered Corners for Coat Facings

 In order to line a coat and hide all your nasty frayed edges, you gotta do some facings first. A facing is just a strip of fabric that is sewn to a raw edge and turned under so the lining doesn’t show on the outside. But what happens when two facings meet? You get the deformed and nightmarish hell-spawn we call a mitered corner. Or maybe its just a diagonal seam that keeps the corners neat. Tedious, yes, but well worth it when you see the slick beauty of a properly sewn lining.

1) Cut strips, mine are 2" wide. Standard is 1.5" but wider ones are easier to sew. Make them exactly as long as the edge it faces.

2) Cut a 45 degree angle, leaving a small seam allowance at the corner. Put right sides together and sew along the angled seam. Turn right sides out. 

3) Line up facings with the edges and sew. Turn right sides out and press. Now you’re ready for the lining!
