So heres my jacket from 2nd fitting. I've been working towards my third fitting the last couple classes but realized I still needed to do an update. I took off the peplum for this part as it was only basted on originally, but realized that this would make a fabulous cropped jacket also.... Lightbulb....
Aren't my bound buttonholes amazing? I enjoyed doing them and they turned out fantastic so yay! Also note the tailors tape that is permanently basted on the outer edge of the lapel and down the center front of the jacket. I haven't shown that all the hymo has been permanently basted in along the seam allowances and the seam allowances have been catchstitched down over top as well.
It really has come together with the shoulder pads and sleeves basted in, please note thats all hand basting. This class is great for my handstitching, I was decent before but I'm getting better and better, which is never a bad thing.
Not even two weeks of classes left to go and still a fair bit to do. Scary.
