I'm taking Gretchen Hirsch's On line class The Starlet Suit Jacket. I need to brush up on tailoring details as I had them in HS and have forgotten a lot of how I did that. This class is great as you sign up and just check in with the videos whenever you feel like doing it with no limits on time. I also DL my pattern and I'm in the process of taping that all together 57 pages long like a big puzzle. I have two projects to finish first however.
The fact that I used a faux fur for my collar made it a different deal than what the pattern called for. Mine is not attached but snaps on in place due to the fur volume it's like twice the size as what the pattern calls for. The cuffs are going to be the same deal. The collar is lined in crimson satin all put on by hand as I couldn't really sew well on this thick fur. I have the cuffs left and button holes and hems to complete. I'm using the little red glass vintage buttons shown above.
Pan is on my legs here as I sew with Kalen right up there too seeing what I'm doing and wanting my attention. Pan often wears a jacket in the house as he gets cold.
