Hi all, thanks so much for all your comments on my Newlook 6188 jacket. The whole process really got me thinking about my main goal of joining the fearless sewalong, aftersome thought I came into a conclusion, I re-cut the back and front bodice and exercised as much patience as possible to join them perfectly, afterall "what is fearless if I am fearful". Few hours later I got an excellent matching plaids and am so proud of myself.
I even did a bit of couture sewing (if that's what's called) I used tie neck interfacing to gather the armhole for sleeve placement, this method worked perfectly without any puckering. Got a bag full of ties for $2 at the thrift shop which I will also be using to make some bias strip for future use.
I added a real pocket instead of ordinary welt by combining view A welt and view B pocket, I also removed the chest welt because I don't really like any detail in this area.
So far here are what have got, I am working on the lining, hopefully I will have it done in few days
What do you think fellas?
