It's time to sew the Mackinaw Coat!  Today is day 4 of the sew-a-long and we get to finally start sewing.  Keep in mind that these instructions are not as detailed as the illustrations in the Mackinaw Coat PDF pattern.  This sew-a-long is meant to be a used as a supplement to the pattern and help visualize some of the trickier steps.
