I first decided to make this pattern in February 2011, can you believe that?! A year and a half ago? Talk about procrastination! The good news is that I am cruising along now and am getting close to finishing it.
I want to share with you some photos of where I am currently up to. Please be kind, this is the first jacket I have ever made. I know some of the seams are a bit dodgy, and the scallops are not perfect. But I am learning quite a lot from making this two piece suit, so for that I am grateful. I think a pink two-piece suit is a necessity for any vintage wardrobe. 🙂
Here are some photos of where I am up to with the jacket…
~ The back of the jacket has not yet been pressed ~
~ The Liberty Betsy fabric I intend to line the jacket with ~
~ Elbow dart ~
The skirt has been cut out and is ready to be sewn up. I am going to make it with an invisible zip because I like the look of these even though the pattern asks for a side zip.
So, my question to you all is what is your preferred garment underlining method? I would love to get some tips/recommendations before I decide on how to underline the jacket and skirt. Any advice would be very much appreciated!
