This CD book shows the entire process used in making my tailored jacket, from developing the pattern pieces from a well-fitting jacket shell, to hand-sewing in a lining, and all the steps in between. Kenneth King’s aim was to create a book that illustrates the process so well that one would feel confident to try a tailored jacket. This book covers the construction of a tailored jacket by following a jacket, from the cutting out to the finishing. The text is illustrated with over 300 photos, showing even the smallest details in the process used to make tailored jackets. Some of the topics covered are: Materials and tools; Patternmaking to create the linings, facings, and other corollary pieces so that all pieces fit together perfectly; Interlinings; Complete construction of the garment, with "sidebars" at different points in the process. For example: The perfect way to ease a sleeve cap; Constructing the notch lapel, as well as the shawl lapel; Handling uneven shoulders; Constructing the lining, including installing the hidden lining pocket and piping.
