The Tailored Jacket journey is never ending one... This jacket is truly testing me in many different ways as I started losing sleep because of it (literally). I am tackling each challenge as it comes. I know you may think this is rather silly but this jacket is almost like spiritual awakening to me. I am getting to know myself more and more with each stage of the construction.
This is what I can update on so far.
The CollarThis stage of construction went well or relativistically well. As you can see this method of collar construction involves working with the fully finalised collar where you sandwich the collar in and stitch each side individually to upper/back and facing/upper collar. I have to admit it does require a lot of precision(provided you are after nice professional finish).

The LiningAt this stage I was able to trace the pattern for lining section including only relevant parts of the pattern that are applicable for lining.

In summary this is where I am at with the jacket. Hope ayour sewing adventures are going well.
Have a great day and updates will follow soon.
