how to sew a jacket: fusible interlining and first seams


I hope you are all getting a nice start into the new year! Here are the next steps for the jacket of burda 1/15 that won last months vote. The first steps can be found here.

DSCF6699first I put the side-part and the shoulder and neck parts on fusible interlining. I used it, because my orange fabric is thinner then the dark brown, so I decided to even them out with vlieseline H410

DSCF6700then I ironed it onto the parts, placing some old fabric below

DSCF6701and on top of it, to make sure the fabric or interlining did not get burned

DSCF6702after ironing I pinned them back together with the paper, just to be sure I don’t mix anything up

DSCF6703now I pinned the front parts together

DSCF6711and the front shoulder parts

I hope this was helpful for you! Let me know if you have any questions!

keep sewing and smiling
