One of my sewing resolutions for 2012 was to make a jacket with a lining. Somehow, I decided I could tackle matching plaids, DIY piping, an acetate lining, bound buttonholes, and a welt pocket. Oh, and some hand tailoring too; the upper collar is interfaced with hair-canvas & pad-stitching. The first step was overcoming the fear of cutting into this fabric. It was the end remains of a bolt of beautiful wool plaid with a really soft hand… Gertie came along with her Starlet Suit Jacket course on Craftsy, and I knew what this wool would become.
