My 1940's Jacket.
Added Jun 6, 2011
I created this jacket through Sherry’s Tailoring Sew-along. It was an amazing experience. I had already made one jacket and learned a lot from that. This tutorial answered a lot of questions that I had about jacket construction (example changing the seam allowances on the collar to make it fold over and not show the seam edge). I also did about 7 muslins of this jacket to get the right fit. It was a lot of work, but I am very happy with how it turned out.
I will be making a matching skirt for this as well. The skirt just happened to match up with the pattern.
I blogged about it here: http://www.rebeccashelly.com/blog/?p=619
