Rickey Jacket Sew Along Part 7: Making the Lining and Bagging pt 1

Posted by Betsy C on

Ok, deep breath everyone! Time for the jacket to take shape. Let's make the lining.

28) Sew the center back seams, back to side panel, side panel to the front and the front to the facings. 

29) Create pleat for CB lining by matching the notches at the top neck. Fold pleat to one side and baste to hold in place. Iron flat to zero at waist. 

30) Sew the front and back lining shoulder seams together, using the same method for your collar version.

31) Assemble the lining sleeves, same as was done in step 26 & 27 and set into the lining armholes. 

32) Join the collar to lining using same method that was used for outer body. 

Bagging the Lining: 

35) Align the right side of lining body to the right side of outer body from the bottom front edge, along the center front, and collar and down to the opposite bottom front edge. Sew all around from the bottom facing hem to opposite side facing hem. *Reminder: this should be sewn with 3/8” (1cm) seam allowance.

36) Time to fine tune the collar edges. 

For the notch collar view: Sew the facing to the body so the collar point seam allowance points upwards like the photo.

Clip diagonally at intersecting collar/lapel seam through all layers. You will also want to trim the seam allowance layers to reduce thickness. 

For the Shawl Collar View: 

Clip diagonally at intersecting collar/lapel seam through all layers. You will also want to trim the seam allowance layers to reduce thickness. 

Next up, we finish bagging the lining and put on the finishing touches.
