one week late, I am sorry, but finally the last steps for the jacket. If you didn’t read the first parts yet, you can find them here: part1, part2, part3.
next I pulled the hood back through the hole
and pinned the seam allowance (folded apart) together,
now I pulled the neck-seams through the hole
and pinned seam allowances together again and sewed, this way the hood-parts will stay together
now I pinned the seams at the sleeve hem
then pulled the sleeves through that hole
and pinned the hems together, then sewed
after that I also pinned and sewed the seam allowances of the sleeves together, to keep the sleeve lining in the sleeve, and I don’t pull it with me every time I take the jacket of. then I did the same with the shoulder seams and then the back and side seams, moving towards the hole, same as when you clean a floor towards the door, so you can leave the room, without stepping on the wet floor. last I closed the hole with hand stitches
and my jacket is finished!
I hope this was helpful for you! Let me know if you have any questions!
keep sewing and smiling
Just in time for the freezing cold 🙂
