Hems And Zippers

After a few weeks reprieve, I’ve started back up on my Ottobre jacket – just in time too because our warm weather seems to have been put on hold and replaced by chilly, damp air! I managed to get the body of the jacket put together and topstitched everything. All I have left are the hems and inserting the zipper:

I spent a great deal of time pondering which way to have the stripes running on the collar. I settled on cutting them vertically so when the collar lays down they look horizontal. I had also checked a jacket that Taylor got earlier in the year and noticed that’s the way hers was running as well.
Let’s hope it stays cool before this jacket is finished!

    Love that fabric and the jacket is already looking good. Will it be reversible? No matter when you finish it, the weather will be cool again someday!

    Your jacket looks great…..btw….what’s up with the chilly weather? It’s the middle of May!!! It’s chilly here as well. I’m working on a shirt for my little boy. Garrett is studying Eric Carl in first grade so I am making a shirt that has the “Very Hungry Caterpillar” on it….the top button is an apple core and the rest are little red buttons! So cute
