Progress on second jacket of the year
I had a productive sewing day. I cut out the KS jacket early this AM. I took time to read through the pattern instructions as this is not an easy-peasy pattern to make. I have not sewn a separating zipper in many,many years so I wanted to make sure all parts lined up well.
Next you stitch the right front and right side fronts together. All seams are pressed to side front and then topstitched 1/4 inch from seam edge.
I used embroidery thread in bronze metallic color that matched the bronze in the jacket. In this photo the other side of the zipper has not been attached.
Next you attach the other side of the zipper to the right front edge of the jacket. It has to be aligned with the other side of the zipper. It is important to mark the placements of the zippers on the fabric to align both sides.
Here is a shot of both front pieces with zipper separated.
Next step is to attach the pockets and zippers. I ended my sewing with a nice start on the jacket.
