| Paired the jacket with my boyfriend cut jeans and my leopard pumps |
for a little fun!
|Back stay and the inside during construction|
|Sleeve head using the interfacing from my hubby's old tie|
|It's all about the back, right!|
|Fully lined using the bagging method...|
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? I didn't use the instructions, I followed jackets for real people! And just to note I am extreme devote follower of instructions, and didn't use them with this jacket only followed the DVD and my jacket came out great!
Conclusion: I really had a great time making this jacket, I learned a lot of new techniques, bagging a lining for jacket, making a back stay and using a sleeve head to ease in a sleeve, sewing in shoulder pads, notching a lapel, the list is endless! If you do not own jackets for real people DVD run not walk to order it! That's all for now Divas! Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!
|One for the road, okay, okay my last smug action LOL!|
