|Muslin 2.0 (collar points pinned under)|
This was no mean feat, I can tell you. The Sewing Lawyer has made a ton of jackets and owns quite a number of pattern drafting books, many of which were read (in parts) yesterday afternoon. But pattern drafting isn't an intuitive art in these parts. In the end Vogue 7908 (now OOP) came to the rescue.
At right is the collar/lapel I cobbled together. I am pleased that it actually works, although the collar is still too big and not quite the right shape.
And here is proof that all the seams and darts from the Lekala sketch are present and accounted for - in the comments to my last post, there was a question about that.
