Cover your shoulder pads with fabric
A jacket without shoulder pads do not feel like a jacket to me but more like a cardigan. However sometimes I like the feeling of a jacket that is not fully lined. Sometimes I sew a jacket in a pale color. If I do so, I think that the shoulder pads looks ugly on the inside or you can see the color of the shoulder pad through the pale fabric. Therefore, I cover my shoulder pads with fabric. In this post, I will show how I do it.
Cut two pieces of fabric with the measurement 25 cm x 25 cm. in jacket without a full lining I like to use fabric with a fun print. In jackets made in a pale color, where there is a risk of the shoulder pads to be visible, I use the same lining as for the jacket.
Place the shoulder pad diagonally on the wrong side on fabric. Then the grainline will be on bias.
Fold the fabric around the shoulder pad and pin
Cut away the extra fabric and finish the raw edges.
