I purchased it from Joann's at the beginning of 2018, but had no idea what I would make.
Then I found a 2 yard remnant at Vogue Fabrics of this brown knit with...you guessed it - gold thread!
I used Vogue 9275
So off I went on a zipper hunt which took a couple of weeks!
As you can see, I went with the darker zipper because I wanted the contrast!
And because the teeth were...you guessed it...GOLD!
My only hack was to use a zipper a few inches shorter than the pattern suggested.
I need to be able to walk, right? 😄
Once my machine was back home, I used my walking foot to join these 2 opposing fabrics together! That made it sew much easier!
I used the bag method to line it...there's the opening in the sleeve lining that was used to pull everything through!
Yep, I always finish my linings as well.
This one was serged.
After the top-stitching was done...I had a fully constructed long bomber jacket!
I was SEW happy!
But I am NOT taking this one apart to fix them! It just took too long to finish! LOL!
Now to start my SWAP (Sewing With A Plan) for 2019!
Check out my sew sister, Anita Morris' Blog about sewing with a plan! In-fact check out her entire SWAP series! It is quite insightful!
What are your sewing/crafting plans for this year? I'd love to hear about them!
