(Here's the linen jacket pieces laid on the table and "framed" with interfacing. See how long the jacket is!!! I just need some white lining and I can start assembling. The white pleated front pants which I'm holding are done!
(Closer view. Linen is a WONDERFUL fabric to sew and wear. It's good qualities outweigh the fact that it can at time be very wrinkly!)
(Inner view!!!! Wonderfully tailored on the inside. Complete with waist skirt, zipper, lining, hook and eye and all of the other components of a well-tailored garment. My student said it looked like a piece of art!)
Ok, I'm off to visit family in Atlanta to celebrate my 70th birthday. More on this project and helpful tips upon my return!!!! Take Care! ~Gentleman Jim
