1950s suit jacket – first step in tailoring process – Leachway pattern

Hello everyone!

I would like to present you the latest big work I am working on : a 1950s suit jacket! It is based on a vintage british jacket I bought on ebay :

I only made the muslin for now, modified the pattern and chose the fabrics! I also read a lot about the traditional interlining and structure of a suit. Now I can’t wait to start sewing it! :)

If any of you have any advices for me for this kind of work, I would be very happy to read them!! :)

If you want to see more about this project, come and visit my blog :)

Thanks for reading!!

    Do share the result (and the process!) :)

    • Hehe I hope! Yes I am finishin interfacing, coming sooooon!! :)

  • My only advice would be: interfacing is your friend!

    • Oh yes, my mistake, in the post I wrote “interlining” instead of “interfacing” . Indeed it has been my best “friend” lately on this jacket haha!
      Thanks for your advice :)
