I thought I'd share some of my more impressive summer sewing projects. I have quite a few. I took a week long class on how to make a custom fit tailored jacket, using traditional tailoring techniques. I have to say, I don't think I have ever learned so much about sewing in one week.
So many valuable techniques were taught in that class, I loved it.
I made a wool jacket in class, then we had a summer project to tailor another one. I chose to make a more lightweight blazer out of linen suiting and line it with a plain cotton weave. I chose a lighter fabric so I could wear it in multiple ways by layering. Thick, warm wool wouldn't have allowed much layering opportunities.
Princess seams, rolled collar, two buttons.
I would say that from start to finish, the second time around it probably took me a full 48 hours combined. As a student, this is belongs in the group of projects I am most proud of. I hope ya'll like it!
