Project

Heavy linen jacket

What are you most proud of? The sleeves went in with no problems, and I did not have to use my seam ripper at all! I have not done the buttonholes yet as I haven't found the perfect buttons. It also needs to be pressed. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Even if you don't alter the pattern as Professor King does, it is a great workshop for learning about tailoring. The first time watching the workshop I was a little overwhelmed, but once I watched it again and started working on my jacket, it all made sense. When I didn't understand something I would ask questions which Professor King answered very promptly.
