It's all about the roll of the lapel, right?
That's what everyone tells me.
I've finished the stiffening in the sleeves and all other pieces. I saved the lapels for last.
I liken them to baking a cake. You might have all the ingredients right, but you don't know how well it turned out until it's finished.
I rolled the lapels on a tube of paper I have and basted the seam tape on the fold.
I then laid the facing piece in and tightly tacked it to the fabric, like my books suggest.
I do like the look, it feels so light and frothy.
