After a discussion of garment design details in Session #2 of VIRTUAL Style School, Pam immediately thought about the green jacket she never wears, despite the fact that she loves the color and the style. She thought she now knew how to make it work …
But it turns out she was wrong.
We had talked about the potential widening effect of some horizontal elements — so she thought she’d improve the jacket by removing the black band from the lower edge. Turns out that would make the garment too short … so back to the drawing board.
Then she remembered that the recommended styles for her hourglass body type were all shaped in toward the waist. So she added vertical darts to the jacket front and back and stitched some inward shaping into the side seams. She slipped in a pair of removable foam Shoulder Shapers too,
Here’s the finished result — Amazing, no?
