Hovea View A, C & E Lining

If you are making a lined A, C, or E version of the Hovea jacket – today is a big day for you! We are finally going construct the body of the jacket and add that lining! I’ll show you how to bag the lining for a clean and professional finish. It’s really not as hard as you might think, and its pretty satisfying when it’s done!

And again – I’ll be showing you this on the longer view C, but the same method applies to all three views.
