Notched collar

Just have to show a picture of the notched collar. Earlier this year I tried the method that is described in Threads when Nancy K wrote about that article. Now I’ve used the method in a real jacket and I’m quite pleased. I made a few pictures of construction that I’ve not uploaded yet, not too sure you can see much on them. Working with a mostly black fabric is not too easy for pictures.


  1. Isn't it a treat to find such an easy method? I've tried a lot of methods and this is by far gives the most consistently good results.
    Your lapels look fabulous.

  2. This is gonna be a great jacket. It looks very promising, I'm looking forward to the end-result!

    I'd like to answer your question as to where I order my fabric on internet.
    I often buy at 'De Stoffenstunter' and 'De Lapjesschuur'. They both have a great variety of fabrics. De Lapjesschuur has a lot of notions too! Their prices are low and service is really good, in my experience.

  3. It looks amazing. I'm going to check out the details more closely. Thanks.

  4. Beautifully done. I love all the details, BTW, they either give me ideas to try or inspire me to do better in my own sewing.

  5. I am really liking the look of this jacket. Love the fabric and the workmanship is fabulous.
