- Fabric and lining in the quantities specified in the table below,
- 1,50m of fusible, preferably that kind of fusible especially dedicated to suits (wool suits),
- Two shoulder pads,
- 1,50m of double-sided fusible tape.
The main difficulty is … time. If this is your first jacket, be prepared to get back down to work several times (meaning “several days”). The booklet is full ok simple yet specified diagrams to leave nothing to chance, so you will always feel on the right side of action !!
It is extremely important to note that ironing is (even more) a key step in the success of your jacket. Indeed, when you compare a jacket mounted by an “amateur sewer” but weeeeeell ironed in the corners and inside the collar and a jacket mounted to the nearest half-millimeter by a professional but badly ironed, there is no hesitation: the first one wins all prizes !!!! So #keepcalm, you can get there and you won’t regret having thrown yourself into this big piece and eventually wearing it day after day!
FABRICS WE RECOMMEND
- Coating fabrics, thick wool tweed, fine wool suit, these are fabrics that move beautifully while having a very beautiful outfit.
- Brocard (and why not?)
- Linen / Hemp
