Vogue 8601 - Part 3 - Shaping the Jacket Front

12:00 AM

Interfacing the the jacket front creates a smooth line from the shoulder to the bustline and ensures that the garment front drapes smoothly over the body. The interfacing for the front is cut from Hymo and curves above the bustline and extends to the side seam, 3" below the underarm.
I also reinforced the shoulder by adding bias cut hair canvas. Padstitched the lapels, taped the roll line (by hand) so that the lapels lie close to the body without gaping.

Note: This is a very important step, especially for a full-busted figure.

And here is the under collar attached.

Next the lining...
