  1. Hello Jeff,

    Thanks for the videos. Very helpful and educational to see the procedures/steps done visually hands-on. I have a question or concern regarding the latest video "..Canvassing the Foreparts". I notice in this video that Rory has already cut the jacket front from the garment fabric prior to basting the canvas and garment fabric together. In preparing the canvas, he created the v's: shoulder darts and the darts in the armsyce to create the shaping in the chest. Therefore, how do you add those adjustments to the jacket fabric? Would it be a matter of stretching, steaming and easing to have the jacket fabric fit properly to those adjusted areas in the canvas? Also, in your previous post you created your canvas front first, shaped it, and then you were waiting for the fabric to arrive. Do you prefer creating your canvas front first, and then cutting out your jacket fabric?

    Thank you again for your blog and the new videos
    David
