Jacket Journey continues....
The LapelsThe lapels have been set and now resting overnight in order to be shaped . There was fair bit of hand stitching involved and like anything else this was my first time attempt ever. Nonetheless it was fun.

Sleeve VentsOk, I didn't anticipate this step in my jacket construction workflow but it had to happen as I have drafted the sleeve pattern incorrectly without realising my mistake until today.
My main objective was to get away from mitered corners which(like everything else) I have never attempted before. Luckily today I've decided to join undersleeve to the top sleeve which made me realise that I had one fold too many for each vent arm/side. This obviously is not a look and it had to be fixed.

The CollarI have steamed the collar to ensure it has sufficient moisture so it can be shaped on my tailored ham.
And lastly, this is all I have at the moment to update on. There will be more information to come in next few days. I am truly enjoying construction of this jacket and truly looking forward to the end product. Every minute I have to remind myself to enjoy the journey and not to be focused solely on the end result.
I say "farewell" until next post with Welt pocket i have managed to complete...truly love this pocket...
bye bye !!!!
