Congratulations on your top. It looks fantastic. It shows that some effort and care really pays off. The binding tape gives a very polished look to the inside, perfect for an unlined jacket.

Nice jacket! The inside seams are very nicely finished and well done on tackling a SBA for the first time. I'm sure you'll get a lot of wear out of this.

yes, i would like to ask if the front seam and side seam when sewn together fun through the middle of the apex or if the seam runs up about 1/4 to 1/2 in. beside the middle of the apex . your jacket is very very nice . carole

Carole, the princess seams run about 1&3/8" to the side (toward the arm) from a long dart (on each side) which stops 1/2" below the apex of the breast point. In the back, the jacket consists of only two princess seams and the CB seam. I hope that is more clear. Thanks
