Learning to sew: Moving right along with the red jacket. September 26, 2012 15:15 1 Comment

I am making progress on my red crepe jacket. Perhaps more slowly than my sewing teacher would like. But. Nonetheless, progress. Yesterday, I sewed the lining — a silk-cotton batiste — to the interfacing.

RedjacketbuttonsAt class tomorrow, I hope to finish the lining. Complete with sleeves. Can you say scary? I can and I have. We will be attaching the sleeves using the flat sleeve insertion method. Any thoughts to share? Please do. Generously. All tips much appreciated.

And I love my buttons. Covered, of course. (I have a weakness for them.) I used Pat's Custom Buttons and Belts, as I have so many times in the past. She never disappoints.
