Hello all and let me say "Job well done!". So far you have proven very capable tailors congrats!
For this week your homework is to sew together the lining pieces including the shoulder incline, sides and back as explained in class with a centre back pleat, unless asked to do otherwise. Sew together the jacket pieces except for shoulder incline, it will be covered in class next week as it needs to be eased into place and have twill tape added in a specific manner. Here is the power point so you can have a general idea of how it will work. The collar will be sewn in class.
Next week is the sleeves, please have them ready to go by sewing them together and pressing the seams. Please bring already cut the sleeve stay the same shape as the sleeve cap from point A to point B, same seam allowance as the actual sleeve and make it 2 cm wide into the sleeve, again here are the pictures, click here, if you can't open them please contact me and I will send them to you. You will also need twill tape to go around the armhole and the shoulder pads. If you are able please set-in the lining sleeves at home, if not come in early and do it in class prior to starting, this will keep us on track to finish the blazer on time. Once the sleeves are in all that remains to be done is attach the lining to the jacket and I will show you a neat trick that speeds up the process ten fold!
