Back to a post about real sewing again. Yesterday evening I just had to take my mind of work, and my eyes from the computer screen. And sewing is really good to take my mind off other things.
The jacket is coming along nicely, the fabric is very easy to sew with. And all the preparation work really pays off. No fit alterations, the interfacing makes it feel a bit more stable, but not stiff. And as it's far from hot here at the moment and only raining, it feels more like fall than summer, so sewing a jacket like this seems appropriate. Otherwise I would be diverted to summer tops.
It has a lot of pins still in, for the closing, at the sleeves and to hold the shoulder pads. There is still a little space in the back, but this disappears immediately when I move my arm a bit. For next time (and yes, I think I will sew this one again soon in a beautiful blue fabric I have) I will take out a bit on the back, and leave this one as is. In general I think it's pretty good, and I can finish it.
And when I give the impression making no mistakes while sewing: this is the second collar, and I had to take out part of one sleeve, because it was eased differently from the other sleeve. The seam ripper is never far away.
