Jacket Issue
Can't find where the problem is

Hello. I'm almost finished with Vogue 4044, sewing the jacket. I have some puckers right under the pocket, and I can't figure out how to fix it. The jacket is wool, and the front facings are like a twill.

The pucker looks as if the facing or lining is pulling the bottom edge of the jacket up, yet on the inside, the lining lies flat.

I'm not sure how to post pics, but can email them to anyone interested.

Thanks.

It definitely could be that the facing or lining are too short. This doesn't always show up until you have it on. To diagnose it, you can rip out the a few inches below the pucker to see if that fixes it.

You probably would do well to post a photo of the problem, too, so that the other discussion board denizens can weigh in intelligently.

Thanks, Tom. That's what I thought, too, so I took out the facing tacking.
Okay, here are pics of what it looked like, and after I made a slight adjustment:

When sewing on the facing, lengthen your stitch length a couple of clicks. This puts more thread in the stitch and will help prevent the facing from pulling up the jacket. It is aggravating, isn't it? I have Nancy Zieman to thank for that trick.

What you describe is very common in jackets/ I cut the facing a bit longer and adjust the length manually while I am standing in front of the mirror.

Thanks to everyone for your help. I am following your suggestions to get this jacket wearable. I've gone in and changed the settings so that anyone can see the pics - I hope.

Thanks again!
