June 27 - July 1, The Week in Patterning - 28

Alexandra Reynolds EvaDress Patterns How To My Personal Dressmaking The Week in Patterning Storyboard Vintage Patterns

This week's 'patterning' was sewing some finish details on the 1929 jacket from pattern SE20-5955 (click images for larger view):

This lightweight version of the coat is in the shorter length from a plaid blend (thrift find). 

As shown below, a 'kit of parts' for facing the sleeves and lower hem of the jacket (since only a 1" hem was allowed in the original pattern).  I gave a 2" finished hem in the jacket by applying a hem facing rather than lengthen the front and back piece to turn a 2" hem (for lack of enough fabric).

(I'll drop the lining in and post photos of it looking better-structured when worn!)
