I chose a Burda Petite pattern jacket to make a skirt suit for an office function at the end of the year (early bird and all that) and I have been reading up online about bagging the lining ie sewing it in entirely by machine.

My anticipated difficulty is that the princess seams on the body of the jacket all end in rounded vents in addition to the normal "square" vents on the sleeves.

I looked up several sources (The Sewing Place, Fashion Incubator, among others) but I am not seeing specific instructions for multiple vents.

Can I still bag the lining? If so, how do I handle the 6 vents?

Also, connected [stupid] question: do I interface the 6 vent extensions as well as the hems?

If anyone has an online tutorial or video I can consult on this, please link me up! TIA!

(PS Disregard my skill level. Never updated it but have made 4 jackets so far in my life as well as a plethora of lined garments.)
