Vogue 1132 - Red Jacket
Part Four, Make and Add a Lining and a Few Other Things
I got the lining made yesterday, so I was able to get it attached this morning but not before deciding to make a bound buttonhole. Here's the buttonhole:
There was only one, so I thought it would be a nice touch rather than a machine made one. I chose to make the lips in a fabric that does not shred as easily as the jacket fabric - it wasn't too hard to find a red among my collection that would match.
I also found this vintage button among my collection that is just the right size for the jacket:
The jacket so far looks like this, which is pretty much how it will look when done, minus the blue threads marking center fronts and the pins in the one side holding the shoulder pad and sleeve hem in.
There's not much left - just finishing some handwork, and tacking down the sleeve lining hems. I think I'll be able to show the finished jacket tomorrow.
Parting Shot: Costumes, Part I. After going through the costumes we have and doing some try-ons, we have a pile that need altering to work for the current production and that need laundering.
