The White Jacket is Done!
Well, technically. I am still on the hunt for the perfect buttons and need to put the buttonholes in, but that's quick and easy. I set the sleeves, sewed the lining, sewed in the lining, finishing with hand sewing the lining at the sleeve head. I lost the last page of instructions (it's in the studio somewhere...I just didn't want to waste time searching for it), but once you are familiar with garment construction, a basic task like that is not a stretch. Let me just say that I am very happy with the results! Sorry I didn't finish it sooner! It fits well and I can see wearing it alot. Such a shame you're not supposed to wear white after Labor day! When has a rule ever stopped me?
