It's nice to see so many wonderful finished pieces!

I came home from Boston to my late Grandmother's Kenmore sewing machine.  It will be a great improvement over my cheap White machine and it even does simple monograms.  I'll be going overseas for a few weeks soon, so I might not get a chance to use it much before I go (weep!).

Hi everyone, it's been so long!  The summer was sooo hot that I couldn't bear to make jackets, so I made bags.  I just started my sewing/pattern-drafting classes today - Ladies Suit Jackets.  I plan on making Vogue 8087.
We will learn to construct a tailored ladies jacket using industrial sewing techniques, I'm so excited.

I will update my progress.

hey there Smiley! love the designer jacket on the first page, v. detailed! i'm in the process of makin a jacket. i say process because i cant finish it cos i hav no lining...(i'm a pennyless 16yr old with a bad shoppin habit) i made it without a pattern from the shop (because that costs money too, i only got the fabric cos it was for sale for 2) i drew up my own on newspapers. it looks a bit dodgy at the mo, pins everywhere, needs ironin...

I'm almost finished my jacket(s) and am so excited.  I just love my class!  I know now never to interface a front of a jacket(only facing pieces).  That is why my blue jacket turned out all ripply.  Also I know why the sleeves look crappy.  I tried to stabilize the fabric because it was a stretch woven.  Doing tailored jackets from woven natural materials really turn out the best.  I will post my jackets when completed.

OK, I started my jacket over 6 months ago and then stuffed it into a Tesco plastic bag for several months. Now I've got it out and have almost finished it. Shame school starts again in the morning.

Blazer is usually part of a set (like a suit) and a jacket is outerwear for warmer weather.

did you understitch?  Also pounding it with the clapper helps.
