After weeks of hard work my Starlet Suit Jacket is finally finished! I am very pleased with the way it came out. Gertie is an excellent instructor, and I would recommend this course to anyone. I love this pattern, I did a size ten with no alterations and it fits me perfectly. I hope Gertie's upcoming book will be just as perfect as this jacket, and I can't wait until it comes out!
I chose to do all the couture techniques offered in this course including, pad stitched lapels and collar, welt pockets, and bound buttonholes. Even though I have done most of this before, with the exception of the pockets, I learned different techniques which were so much easier than the way i was doing things before. The bound buttonhole, and facing for the buttonhole was amazing.
I used a spring green color wool coating, and a pink rose print silk lining, both from Mood Fabrics. The buttons which match perfectly are from M&J trim, also in NYC. I am so in love with this jacket, and really proud to wear it. Thanks Gertie and Craftsy!
