I'm not completely over my cold, still sneezing and coughing but thankfully the jack-hammer-inside-my-head feeling is gone. So I have no excuses for not getting back to the Marcy Tilton jacket.
The pattern instructions suggest marking the stitching line around the corners of the pocket. I did not do this this on the first jacket I made and even though it worked out the first time, I would highly recommend following this tip. I also basted around the pockets, and everything came together nicely.
The pleated peplum is the most challenging part of the jacket.
Although I'm not a my peak energy level, I am kind of happy with what I've accomplished today.
* Finish sewing cuffs, check!
* Sew sleeves onto bodice, check!
* Sew narrow hem on pleated peplum piece, check!
* Don't screw up pockets, check!
I think I can call it a night and feel good about what I accomplished today.
Besides, the next step is the facing. That is where I made a sewing mistake on the first one.
I think I'll save that part for the morning when I'm bright eyed and ... well, you know what I mean.
Happy sewing dreams!
