Hooded pea jacket Burda 08-2009-142 (3) Poche à Patte Montée

Image
I know I named this post "Poche à Patte Montée" approximately translating "single welt pocket" and the 1st photo shows a notched collar. Honestly I could not wait any longer to show you my fist ever real notched collar. I must say I am very proud of it. It took ages to be sewn but if not perfect it still suits my standard for the moment.
And from now on I am switching to French as "chose promise, chose due". 
Suite de mes aventures avec ce caban Burda.  Comme je le lis souvent au fil de mes promenades sur les blogs de coutures, je ne suis pas la seule à m'y reprendre à plusieurs fois avant de réussir à décrypter les explications des magazines Burda.
Voici donc une illustration de la poche à patte montée telle qu'elle est expliquée pour ce modèle. 1/ Plier la patte en deux pour superposer ses grands bords, l'endroit à l'extérieur (bâtir)

Hooded pea jacket Burda 08-2009-142 (2) Interfacing

I am not born organized, consequently my progression is daily interrupted by some amendments of my basic plans or by some book consulting or some googling concerning a sequence that I am not mastering and that Burda fails to explain clearly.
For today, let's concentrate on  interfacing. Parlons de l'entoilage.
I used a fusible tricot interfacing suitable for medium weight fabric with some stretch.
To pre-shrink interfacing, I soaked it in hot (not boiling hot, but tab hot) clear water for about 20 minutes and let it dry.

Méthode pour thermocoller l'entoilage :( en anglais uniquement et je m'en excuse, mais je n'ai pas beaucoup de temps. Si vous voulez la traduct…

Though I don't like to write a post without any illustration, I'm feeling the urge to say, yes I am still here and sewing.
I am fighting with DS pea jacket. It's turning out fine but slowly.

I am trying my best with the notch collar. Pictures have been taken, but I spend too much time sewing and searching for tips and different methods to sew a notch collar.
I finally made the decision to use this tutorial
I am quite anxious to master the collar as it the focus point in a jacket IMO.
I must say that never before have I realy been so conscious of the importance of what is called the "turn of cloth".

More on this later...
