I have been working on my newest Mood Sewing Network project, seafoam linen
and I am using Simplicity 2250
This time, I cut a size 12, much better. One thing about this jacket, it is unlined, I am fine with that. The front panel is the only part that is lined, self fabric. The Simplicity instructions have you layer the facing wrong side together and then handstitch the facing under at the shoulder seams and front seam.
Instead, I stitched the shoulder seams of the front and back. Then I layered the facing right side to the wrong side of the back, stitching over the previous stitching line.
I used steam-a seam to hold the binding in place, keeps it from slipping when I stitch-in-the ditch.
The jacket is finished and will be up on the Mood Sewing Network this week.
