Looking back in my posts I found that it’s been almost a month since I last posted about the jacket I’m making. The consequence of working on two major projects at once, getting sidetracked and time issues. I’ve sewn the lining and apart from sewing on the buttons and inserting the lining, the jacket is finished. Next post will show finished pictures.
I realized that I’ve never shown the muslin in detail, and want to do that now, to complete the total picture and for my own reference later.
The muslin was made in the way that is described by Susan Khalje in the latest Threads issue. I got the instruction through Robin, who did a class with Kenneth King and Susan Khalje last year and invited me to the fitting session with Kenneth King. The second picture shows the line KK drafted on the center back. His line indicates where the center back should have been, there is more space necessary on my left side. As I wrote earlier, it was wonderful to see him working on the pattern. Super fast too.
On the inside of the jacket I interfaced the front, made a shoulder and back stay. Difficult to photograph when the jacket is almost finished.
