I am making Very Easy Very Vogue pattern 9574 – a lined jacket with a zippered front opening. The instructions say to put the lining in first and then put the shoulder pads in over the lining which seems strange to me. Is this right or is this a type of tailoring technique that I don’t know about. This is the first Vogue pattern I’ve ever made.
If I do put the pads outside the lining (meaning closer to my body) shouldn’t I cover them in the lining fabric? I would rather them be out of sight (between the lining and the jacket and out of sight. Please advise!
