Join couture sewing expert Lorna Knight and sew an iconic jacket that will play a starring role in elegant ensembles for years to come. This chic garment is both supremely comfortable and an endlessly versatile addition to any wardrobe. Lorna will help you choose the perfect wool tweed fabric and match patterns seamlessly throughout your garment to produce a superior finish. Ensure a fantastic fit with tips for making a muslin (toile), and then let Lorna guide you through sewing your jacket and lining. Construct, gather and shape your sleeves before you sew them high into the armholes for a classic look. Complete your jacket with classic patch pockets, stylish trim and a weighted chain that gives your garment a dreamy drape.
If you live in the UK and you'd like to learn some hands-on tips for making an Iconic Tweed Jacket I'm running a Jacket Making session on the 19th September at The Lorna Knight Sewing Academy in Staffordshire. There is even a self catering holiday cottage next door if you live too far away and if you want to bring the family along too. Visit www.lornaknight.com for more details.
