Suggestions for creating jacket
I am making a Hawaiian Classics Happi Jacket (sort of a karate style jacket) and need some advice on construction. I’ve chosen a gold & cream herringbone tweed wool silk with a contrasting chocolate brown doeskin for the front band and tie belt. The pattern is unlined, but I would like to line it. Would the “bag” lining as described in the Threads online be appropriate?
The sleeves are not set in, but drio shoulder and sewn on, either plain or with a cuff. I am not making the cuff. There is NO MENTION of interfacing, so where would it be best to apply interfacing and what kind? This is a very soft, fluid, comfortable style coat, so I don’t want to OVER construct, but I do want it to look professional.
