Wat do you think guys, are you ready to make your Anise jacket?
From now through October, we’ll be stepping through the process of creating this jacket together. We’ll be using The Anise Companion as a textbook of sorts, and I’ll be posting some of the photos and instructions from the book here as we walk through it. You’ll have a chance to ask questions and solicit feedback from each other, and I’ll be doing my best to jump in and answer whatever comes up.
We’ve had tons of people purchase the companion guide, so hopefully many of you will be joining us! And for those that aren’t, I hope that you’ll still learn plenty from this series. Many techniques are applicable to other projects, from bound buttonholes to single welt pockets to inserting a jacket lining.
I’ll be posting on Tuesdays and Thursdays, starting next week. Here’s our schedule:
Tuesday, Sept 25: Buying fabric and supplies
Tuesday, October 2: Fitting the Anise muslin
Tuesday, October 2: Full bust adjustment
Tuesday, October 2: Wide or narrow shoulder adjustment
Thursday, October 4: Cutting, Underlining, and interfacing
