how to make a lined jacket with hood: zipper and sew lining into jacket


here are the next steps for the jacket, if you missed the first parts you can still find them here: part1, part2 and part3.

DSCF5146next I marked the point where I wanted the zipper to start or in this case end, I didn’t want it to end right with the hem, but a little bit above

DSCF5147then I pinned both zipper sides separately to each side

DSCF5148sewed and tested the zipper

DSCF5154DSCF5155now I pinned the jacket and lining together right sides facing each other, all around, hem, centre front and hood, but left a opening in the hem

DSCF5156then I sewed all around

DSCF5157cut of the corners

DSCF5158and cut in at curves

DSCF5159DSCF5160then I turned through that opening in the hem the right side out

I hope this was helpful for you, let me know about any questions!

Next thursday I will show you how I attached lining and jacket even more to each other, so when I take it off, the lining will stay in the jacket.

keep sewing and smiling

  1. Hi! I think this is a really good tutorial but I’m wishing for one thing that I’m not sure if you can change or not? I’d like to be able to click on the pictures to enlarge them. I’m having issues with attaching the lining at the hood/top of zipper and feel like I could figure it out if I could see a larger photo.

    Thank you!

    • Hi, Heather, sadly I did not take a picture of that part. At the top of the zipper you need to fold the end of the zipper, that does not have any “teeth” in a right angle to the seam allowance, so it will not be seen. If you make a similar jacket like mine, your centre front and hood should have the same form as the lining, so you can just fit it together. Or maybe your jacket has a facing? then it can look a little different. At the moment I am with family for the holidays, but if you have a few days, I can take some more pictures that show that more closely. Just let me know what kind of jacket it is and what the problem is exactly.
