TAM_B: Fitting and Finding Your Size for the Tamarack Jacket
In this session, we will be finding the correct size for your jacket based on your design ideas and making any necessary fit adjustments to the pattern. You will be sewing up a "muslin" in your corrected pattern to make any last adjustments.
Refer to pattern for fabric requirements (see below) or for additional customizations, from notes from the first lecture/demo Introducing the Tamarack Jacket.
2 1/2 - 3 Yards of pattern ease (we sell this) to transfer the pattern and stitch up as a "muslin"
Main & Lining Fabrics: Light to mid-weight cottons, linens, chambrays, and blends work well for this jacket. Since the fabric will be doubled and quilted to a batting avoid anything too heavy as the jacket may become excessively stiff. Refer to pattern for yardage needed in your size.
Batting: High quality batting in cotton, flannel, wool, bamboo, or a blend. Choose the thickness based on how warm you want your coat to be.
7 yds of 1/2" double fold bias binding (or 1/2 yd extra fabric to make your own)
View A: 4 coat hooks & eyes
View B: 4 heavy duty snaps
