Metropolis is not only a little gem of a sewing box, with its high quality materials and its tightly cut jacket pattern, but this wonderful box jacket is also a sewing pattern that is much less complicated than it seems.
A video tutorial for a fun moment of sewing
This first sewing video tutorial details step-by-step the sewing steps of your garment. The version described in this video is the Metropolis jacket with the bands that embellish the busts. For a more streamlined version without bands, you can use this video to follow the steps of this second version.
The technical points are:
- The assembly of the bust bands
- The front pocket
- The assembly of the lining/garment
There is no major technical difficulty and without being a beginner sewing pattern, Metropolis requires above all precision.
