Although there are lots of jacket making skills I still need to learn, there are a fair few I can now tick off my list. I feel like I have at least a basic understanding of jackets, which will give me a bit more confidence when I venture down this path again, perhaps trying my hand at this elegant beauty....?
here, I loathe and detest slippery lining fabric, but this one didn't behave too badly (it wouldn't dare, the look I gave it whilst I was cutting it out was terrifying).
|Behold my beautiful lining|
The bottom edge of the lining fabric was very prone to fraying, so I attached it to the main jacket with bias tape.
I did the same thing with the sleeve lining too.
