Simplicity 4081 - 1940's Jacket

Thank you Kathleen Fasanella of Fashion Incubator. She has some really great tutorials about jacket finishing on her website Fashion-Incubator.com. Before I start my jacket I wanted to make sure that I could professionally finish the bottom. It is the part that I always struggle with. I hate handsewing. This tutorial gives you clean, professional results. I did a mock-up of a square-edge and a curved-edge.

This is the jacket I am making in a olive-y green velvet. It is a re-issued retro pattern. I am making version C (the blue-grey one) inspired by this review at Patternreview.com.
