Donna: How did they fit in there?
The Doctor: They're bigger on the inside.
Thought that was a good quote to begin with...as I've hit a brick wall with the sleeves of my jacket. Long story but I know I've cut everytihg right yet I appear to have 'dropped sleeves'?! Rather than it sitting on my shoulder which is odd for a gathered sleevecap.
Anyway....back on topic after untacking my sleeves I decided to start work on the pocket. My 'practice' pockets on fabric scrap were so bad I'm not even going to show you them. But I got to the point where I had to just go for it. (Small note if you make the Beatrix Jacket I recommend you plan your pocket position on your toile, then mark it on your fabric. And then sew your pockets BEFORE you sew the panels together. It would have made this a whole lot easier if I had thought of that before I sewed it together. lol).
I tried sewing from the instructions in the booklet but they confused me a little so I got out my trusty readers digest sewing book and turned to the relevent page (Read it about 100 times lol!) and started the prep.
But I just couldn't resist the groovy paisley lining.
