Jackets
Sew
Every craft has it's own lingo, and sewing is no exception. If you want to sew a jacket, you've got collar notches, a collar roll, a collar gorge, and more. Brush up on alllll the key elements (who knew there were 37 parts of jacket?!) — it'll make things so much easier when you're actually ready to pull out your machine and start sewing.

The outer construction of a garment gets all the likes. But no dress, coat or pair of pants would look nearly as good (or feel nearly as nice) if it weren’t for the interlining, lining, facing and interfacing.

Between the notched lapels and the precise tailoring, a blazer might seem like a strictly pro-level project. But sewing a structured jacket isn’t nearly as tricky as you might think. In fact, most of the skills required are ones you have likely tried — and nailed! — in other sewing projects. And just like any new sewing challenge, mastering a blazer comes down to patience and practice.
