Make TWO styles of a Classic Lined Jacket with this 90 minute video.

Learn from two tailors how to achieve:

  • A Professional Finish to be Proud Of
  • Perfect Collars, Lapels and Facings
  • Rolled Sleeve Caps & Bust Seams with no puckers
  • Precision Sleeve Vents, Welt Pockets & Flaps
  • Fast ready-to-wear Lining
  • Crisp Details with Your Iron and Pressing Tools

"Start with the easier version - a jacket with simple faced neckline, then move on to the jacket with collar and lapels."

"All the steps from start to finish are shown with camera work that's spot-on. Watch it over and over until you've perfected the techniques."

"There's nothing like seeing a technique done close-up."

In "Create a Princess Seamed Blazer", Kathleen Cheetham and her assistant, Vija Anca combine traditional European tailoring techniques with the speed of ready-to-wear in making two versions of this classic lined blazer.

Kathleen Cheetham is a tailor, pattern maker, author and speaker. She has written numerous articles for magazines such as Threads and Sew News and is the author of Singer Perfect Plus. She produces Petite Plus Patterns, and teaches classes on fitting and design, appearing on the PBS TV series It's Sew Easy and the online educational series Craftsy.

Vija Anca is a specialist in tailoring and bridal wear. She holds a Sewing Specialist Degree in Women's Clothing from Riga Professional School and a Master's Degree of Clothing Production & Machinery from Riga Polytechnic Institute in Riga, Latvia.

The pattern used in this video is Petite Plus Patterns #202 Princess Seamed Blazer however the techniques are adaptable to any princess seamed jacket.

The video is amazing. I have a few videos on constructing a jacket, but yours is by far the most informative. The step-by-step instructions are so simple, clear and concise. I am happy that I bought the video and would recommend it highly to others. Emma S, Oklahoma City OK

This dvd is one of two on jacket making that I have almost worn out from watching over and over. There is a huge amount of information presented. Kathleen clearly explains everything she is talking about and the camera angles showing the details she's talking about are excellent. Kathleen makes it easy to learn and I absolutely love making this type of jacket now. In fact, I can now ignore the instruction sheet in other blazer patterns and just follow Kathleen's logical steps. But the best fitting pattern I've found is Kathleen's Princess Seam Jacket Pattern which this video is based on. I would HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend this dvd.
