|What I’ve been dreaming of: Kristen jacket by Iro.|
You’ll need a 50 cm (20″) separable metallic zipper, a ruler, a pencil and your Quart pattern pieces.Take your main pattern pieces: front, back and side. You’ll need to decide the length of the jacket, for mine I drew the cutting line about 10 cm (4″) below the waistline mark, seam allowances included. Do the same for the lining and the front facing. Draw new pocket marks, approx. centered around the waistline.
The other ziper side is simply stitch directly on the front piece and collar. In order to know where to place it, overlap the front pieces matching the grainline and mark where the zipper should meet (in red in the illustration). Baste the zipper to the front and collar and stitch with a zipper foot.
