It had been a while, but now I want to present you a new jacket. This time, I used again – after a long time – the Mller system to get a pattern. As before, I am not satesfied with the sleeves… and next time I would make the waist a bit smaler in the side and loosen it a bit more in the back.
Shoulderdarts, to get my shoulderblades in :)
The whole jacket is fused, without any hand stitched inlays as I do normally. Just wanted to find out how the industrie does it. Well… for having a casual jacket, it is great because it saves a lot of time, but for formal garments, it would not be my choice again.
My first hand stichted buttonholes… well, I know! I have to improve it!
