I have made good progress with the Cordova jacket this weekend. The jacket unit is complete with sleeves attached and separating zipper installed. I began working on the lining unit and will attach that somewhat differently than the instructions call for.
I still need to tweak the bodice portion some in the front. I took a deeper center back seam which helped fit better and you can actually see the peplum from the rear. The front looks rather boxy still and the peplum is not so noticeable; the pattern drawings show this as being more distinct and more of fitted waist area.
I will make this adjustments before attaching the lining unit.
This fabric has been a true bear to work with. Stitches get lost in the fabric and having to take apart seams have been troublesome. Now that I have most of the fitting issues resolved, a jacket in another fabric may be in the future.
