Tailored jacket

Im making a tailored jacket. Im trying to use some couture methods along with faster techniques.

Im using a charcoal grey wool blend that is machine washable. I've finally finished basting the underlining, which has been strengthened with fusible interfacing where needed, and marking notches etc. I have stitched the darts and bound buttonholes on the fronts and now ready to tape the roll line and pad stitch the lapel.

This is all new to me and Im using Gerties book for better sewing as a guide. I'll be posting progress over the next couple of weeks, but I already know this is going to be a slow sewing project. I want to get it right!
