Just a quick note to say that my Minoru is coming along nicely. You can follow the progress on my my twitter or Instagram feed under the hashtag #minoru2013. In the meantime let me catch you up on my progress so far. (Disclaimer: I don’t usually do WIP updates but this is the first jacket I’ve made so let’s get amongst it.)
I cut my pattern. Hood needed to be cut on the bias as I had, typically, not bought enough fabric.
Put the zipper in the hood (was quite the drama due to accidentally buying stretchy fabric!!
Ripped out stitching and overlocking after realising that I’d done it wrong!
Pulled in the gathers on my shoulders and attached them to the body of the jacket
I sewed my plackets on
I put the front zipper in – unfortunately I could the closest zipper colour I could find was cream *sigh*
And I put the elastic in my cuffs
So now all I have to do is sew together and insert the lining! Woohoo I’m in the home straight! Have you made the Minoru Jacket before?
