1) I mistakenly sewed the welt pocket inside out - and clearly just gave up :)
2) The lining was unfinished - I remember because the loosely-woven blanket-like fabric itself had started to grow - and did not fit the lining that was cut for it
3) Therefore the hem was also left unfinished due to the fact that it was now 2" longer than the lining
There were too many frustrations and so many distractions, I just left it...until now! Pictures due in the morning.
