After returning from the cruise and looking at my previous blog, I am sure I made the right decision. This jacket is not quite ready for public wearing.
Educating myself in order to produce a better jacket has included watching videos and reading my sewing books.
The first video "Create a jacket muslin" is helping me learn how to correct some fitting issues. The second class "Modern jacket techniques" is teaching me many things. One thing is a step-by-step tutorial on making a welt pocket. I purchased both these courses on sale.
A free series I have been watching Expert sewing techniques has been very educational. I am going to try setting in the sleeve like Sarah Veblen does.
I have already decided to change a few things when I start making Burda 128 again. Such as a single, instead of a double vent in back. Also I have decided to try welt pockets with flaps, instead of patch pockets.
Back to video watching.
Thanks for stopping.
