Jacket Tailoring – More Pad Stitching

My jacket is coming along.  This weekend I got caught up on my homework, which entailed a lot of hand stitching.  I pad stitched the lapels:

And taped and stitched the roll line:

I think I’m about done with the inner construction of the jacket front now.

Here you can see the roll of the lapel (this is without any pressing or steaming).

It’s amazing to watch and feel the fabric transform into a structured garment.

  1. Your pad stitching is amazing. I don’t do much of it anymore, because I have opted for easier methods, but knowing how to do it is very important and yours looks soooo good! 🙂
