**PLEASE READ BEFORE CUTTING YOUR FABRIC***
POCKETS: I am going to differ a little from the pattern. They want you to cut the pockets and then turn the edges and sew to the jacket. Unless you are perfect this is not going to go good for you. I am going to cut 4 pieces and I am going to sew two pieces together turn it and then sew my perfect pocket to the blazer. Feel free to turn your edges under if you prefer to follow the pattern's instructions.
I cut 4 pieces as shown below.
Front Facing: This is the part that is going to fold over and this is s great place to put a contrasting fabric to add a punch to your blazer like I am. (notice that my fabric is facing right sides together!)
Upper Collar: This is another place you can add a contrasting fabric for fun
Under Collar: And another place you can add a contrasting fabric for fun, you will not really see it but you'll know it's there!
Back facing: This is the last place you can add a contrasting fabric which will make the inside of the blazer cute!
All my pieces are cut and ready....so now time to get yours ready too. (if you have a serger, you should serg all your edges before we start sewing and make sure all your notches are visible. If you serg as you go along, you can do that as well.)
