Seems to be an unnecessary amount of fuse. Only watched the clip shown above. For a seasonal jacket why would anyone put in ten thousand stitches. The other website I was bombarded with every jacket has to be made with the same amount of work. Not to much, nor under amount, as though they would know. I say put in enough for that particular garment for its intended purpose. A seasonal jacket will look fine with very little work. A 30 year jacket needs much more work. Good find, Posaune.

The Queensland University of Technology, that published this series has many more, over 150 I counted today, videos produced, including basic operation of a (Japanese type) knitting machine. They are obviously meant to offer fashion and design students some help in constructing sample garments and provide an overlap between designer and sample maker. I can't see much tailoring quality, there won't be many tailoring establishments that mark the parts with a cloth drill, for example. The construction of what they called a welt pocket, but is actually a jetted pocket, in parts 5 and 6 disappointed me: thin-lipped variety, cutting through the jettings. Why is there so much confusion about terminology? Is it an American influence? Many languages have clearly different terms for the different pocket types, in German for instance Leistentasche (welt pocket) vs. Paspeltasche (jetted pocket). Increasingly one sees on blogs etc. that they are all called welt pockets. Stop the rot!

Here are all the videos listed:

For a similar, but different approach, the West Valley College videos of the Fashion Department may also be interesting.

lepus:

I often encounter confusing or seemingly conflicting information. At first I thought that that welt and jetted pockets must be different, but then I began to believe they were the same thing. Can you describe the difference, or link to some descriptions or photos?

that is the cause why I have chosen for this the RTW or MTM  Discussion. For me it is like looking porn (if I may say this).
And yes, the terminology is very confused.  In Germany many of the home sewer know more american/english terminus technicus than the german. If I mention the german word "StŁtznaht" I get some empty stare  if I say the  stay stitching  everybody knows what I'm talking about.
