Sewing Curves In Denim

Many people shudder at the idea of sewing curves or sewing denim, but to do both is crazy right? Actually denim is fairly forgiving for this sort of thing. The important issue is having completely accurate registration marks to match up, narrow seam allowances, and ruthlessly slashing those seam allowances to lie flat. 

This is what I am working on right now, the "Icarus" jacket. The map doesn't show it, but the pieces number 55 just for the shell, not the lining. I have made a good start on the sewing and I hope to bang it out in the next 2 days.
