I’m really pleased as today I finished the jacket lining. I had lots of help from my darling mother who told me how to sew the lining onto the facing using the sewing machine and not by hand! That saved lots of time and effort and gave it a better finish. My mum also gave me expert advice on placing and making new shoulder pads, hand sewing the hems of the sleeves and jacket and checking my placing of the sleeves. I think it looks fab, so much better than the original torn lining. The final thing I have to do is to sew the original label onto the lining on the bottom left front.
