Great Tailoring Tutorial....

Found this neat tutorial for tailoring the lapel of jackets on the Sew Whats New Group Blog.  Pad stitches are a type of running stitch made by placing small stitches perpendicular to the line of stitching. Pad stitches secure two or more layers of fabric together and give the layers more firmness; smaller and denser stitches create more firmness. They may also be used to enforce an overall curvature of the layers.
