Finally the beige/pastel silk tussah Marfy 2762 jacket is finished. My favorite design detail has got to be the front pockets. I have never placed pockets to the hem line before, and I like the look. The pockets and flaps cover the side front princess seam and this placement visually slims the wearer's hip line. I machine stitched the pocket to the completed jacket before the lining was stitched to the jacket hem. The silk tussah has thick rough yarns so the machine stitching is nearly invisible. If the stitching were visible, I would have attached the pockets with a machine blind hem stitch.
I marvel at the value of creating a muslin to fit correct a pattern. Look at the uncorrected muslin photo compared to the finished jacket!
One noteworthy construction detail is how I turned the collar corners. A common method is to cut diagonally across the seam allowances so there is very little fabric at the corner point. I only use this method when I cannot achieve a good result by folding the seam allowances. First I fold the upper collar seam allowances to the collar in a neat square. I can tack them in place or hold them in place.
