It’s been a busy week here, so I haven’t gotten as much done on my jacket as I would like. But I did get it completely cut out, including the lining. In a moment of “The Light Dawns on Marblehead”, I realized that the easiest way to cut out my lining was to just lay the outer shell pieces on top of it, with wrong sides together, pin them together and cut. It also will make it easier on myself when I start quilting.
