Lois Ericson #318 Jackets Required
Has anyone constructed this pattern? I have been trying for two years to get the pattern to match at seamlines, etc. I have taken about 3.5″ out of the sleeve pattern, on and on. Is this a “wadder” or do I continue to try to make it fit? I have some smashing red and black paisley wool crepe to had hoped to use, but if it gives me any more trouble, I am going to pitch the pattern and use my TNT (tried and true) jacket pattern. View A is my problem. I haven’t had the courage to try the others. Is this a problem with self-drafted independent patterns? I have had no problems with other independent patterns.
I am not even to the muslin stage, just working with the pattern. Let me know.
