As you can see, this is a very fitted jacket- so the time spent initially in class for fitting was pivotal to the finished product. The bright navy is a great color to mix with the rest of my wardrobe.
As with any sewing project, I used this as a learning experience. I think the most important thing I learned during this class was:
*It’s imperative to utilize tailoring equipment during the process; using the sleeve roll and tailor’s ham to thoroughly press my seams throughout would have resulted in a smoother finish, and is especially important for a project like this, where fabric really gets sculpted to the body.
*Also, don’t move in the middle of a project- your sewing room gets all jumbled and you can’t find where anything has gotten off to! 🙂
