Collar and Lapels!

The collar and lapels are on! It’s starting to look like a real jacket.

back view.  I like how the collar comes up at the back neck.

back undercollar.  I stitched the seam allowances to the undercollar to hold them in place better.

gorge line.  It's hard to tell in the photo, but the lapel is silk satin and the collar is the same velvet as the rest of the jacket.

    Can’t wait to see more! Are you using a pattern? Which one? I am getting ready to audition some for my moto to be.

      It is based on a pattern from Ryiuchiro Shimazaki’s coatmaking book, but the pattern I started with is not a moto jacket. I made some substantial changes to get the right look. You might be better off starting with an actual motorcycle jacket pattern.
