Brooklyn, New Yo...
I basically follow the threads magazine method for bagging the jacket lining except that I attached the facing to the jacket first instead of to the lining first.
After the facings and collar were attached to the body, the lining was fully constructed leaving a 6” opening in a side seam.
The bottom hem and sleeve hems of the self and lining are over locked separately to keep edges even and clean.
The bottom hem fold of the self is pressed up & basted.
The lining and facing seam are stitched in one pass from 3” above bottom hem all the way around the back neck facing to 3” above the opposite hem.
Through the opening in the lining side seam the bottom hem and lining hem are stitched together.
Sleeve hems are matched then pulled through the opening in the lining to be sewn by machine.
Alternatively; Grainline’s recent tutorial using the Jorinde pattern is excellent and the pattern pieces are very similar to this pattern.
