Jacket Part2: Cutting
so here is part2 for the jacket:
part 1 here
I am doing my jacket in 2 different fabrics: fake-leather for bodice and sleeves, and check for the facing and collar and the cuffs, and the yellow lining
and cut them
remember you need to cut the waistband twice
with the check cutting is a little more difficult. So I cut each part itself, and not doubles as when folded
after cutting place the part on the fabric again and make sure the lines are the same
pin it and cut the second facing-part
for the collar I folded the fabric in a 45° angle and pin the part right to the fold
cut it twice
remember to cut a few mm into the seam allowance at the markings of the pattern
with the cuff you dont need that much care, just cut it with the check
place the lining-back-part, the lining front-part, the sleeve-parts and the front-side-part on your lining. I only needed 1 m, not as guessed 1.5.
doesnt look like a jacket yet…
I forgot to buy some fusible interlining, so this will be left for the next part. What fabric and colors did you decide for?
part3 will be online latest next tuesday.
keep sewing and smiling
