I took this pictures about 2 months ago, back in Berlin. With my new sewing studio almost finished I thought I can share those steps with you now, since I will be able to take new pictures soon.
I placed the centre back seam on top of each other, right sides facing each other, wrong sides out
now I cut into the seam allowance to the end of my older seam.
then pinned the whole neckline
starting right at the end of the other seam
and sewed it
next I pinned the side seams
sewed and ironed the seam allowances apart
from the back. the different colors of left and right side are because my dye was spotty, I still kind of like it.
my sleeve looks fitting too
so I pinned it into my arm-hole
ruffling it at the top, pinning a pin in the middle
then pinning again in the middle between those pins
and so on, until the additional fabric is ruffles evenly… if you prefer, you also do sew with wide stitching and ruffle by pulling on the threads
then I sewed my sleeves into the armhole
my jacket so far
Do you have any questions about this project so far? Do not hesitate to ask!
I look forward to getting back to sewing and finish this jacket.
keep sewing and smiling
