Expert Sewing Techniques for Jackets
Instructor: Sarah Veblen
Sarah Veblen

Jackets are a wonderful addition to our wardrobes. But many women shy away from sewing jackets because they don't want a structured blazer-style jacket with traditional tailoring techniques such as pad stitching. Join me as I show you the techniques that I routinely use when constructing a softly tailored jacket, which I think is absolutely perfect for a woman's body.
The sewing techniques I like to use produce a beautiful jacket, both inside and out. My approach is not as fast as bagging a lining, nor is it as involved as traditional tailoring. You�ll see that my use of both machine sewing and hand sewing techniques makes a gorgeous jacket that you�ll be proud to wear!
Here's what I cover in the almost 5 hours of video:
  • Selecting fashion fabric and linings
  • Making the lining pattern with a back pleat
  • Cutting the fashion fabric and choosing the interfacing(s)
  • Initial construction
  • Seam finishes for unlined jackets
  • Setting in the sleeve
  • Applying the optional sleeve head
  • Choosing and applying shoulder pads
  • Covering a shoulder pad for an unlined jacket
  • Designing and constructing a roll collar
  • Making a hanging loop
  • Cutting, sewing, and applying the lining
  • Preparing the jacket hem
  • Sewing the hem
  • Sewing the lining jump hem
  • Pressing and other finishing touches
