Press along the edge.
But I think my favorite part is having an idea in my head and creating it from start to finish. The jacket is also fully lined. This is a version made from a Liverpool that is from Sincerely Rylee.
The finished jacket has a length of Bomber Jacket Size 2T. Best results will come from a sturdier knit such as French terry, scuba, interlock, or Liverpool.
You can pretty much use any kind of knit fabric you want for the lining. Lay your two front pieces on your back piece, with right sides together.
Match up the shoulder seams and sew along the shoulder. Open up your jacket and place it face up. Lay one of the sleeves right side down along the armscye, matching the center of the sleeve with the shoulder seam. Math up the rest of the raw edges and pin. Continue on the opposite side of the sleeve and then sew along the sleeve on, following the curve of the sleeve.
Repeat with the other side. Once both sleeves are sewn on, lay your coat with right sides together, matching up the underarm seam. Pin along the sleeve and down the bodice side.
Sew the arm and sides together. Repeat for the other side. Repeat all of these steps for the lining as well. Set the lining aside. Leave your waistband open and unfolded, so only one raw edge is pinned to the jacket.
Match up the corner of your band with the bottom corner of your jacket. Repeat on the other side. Continue pinning your waistband to the bottom edge of your jacket, stretching the band evenly as you go. Sew along the band, making sure you keep the band slightly stretched and flat as you go.
Be careful not to stretch your jacket. Now we will mark where the zipper is going to end. Fold your band together at one side, matching up the raw edges. Press along the edge. You can mark your fold line with chalk as well, if it makes it easier to see, or just proceed to the next step.
Place your zipper face down along the front of your jacket, with the zipper side facing toward the outside of your jacket. If it goes higher than this, we will fix it later. I pin my zipper in place really well since the fabric can walk on you.
When you get to the slider on the zipper, leave your needle in the fabric, lift up your presser foot, and zip the slider out of the way before you continue. This way you can keep a nice even stitch line. Zip your other zipper piece onto the piece you just sewed on. Fold your jacket with right sides together, opening the zipper, so the edge of the unsewn side matches up with the raw side of the jacket.
Sew this side of the zipper on the same way as you did the other side. You can unzip the pieces if it is easier for you. Next we are going to attach the collar. Find the middle of your collar and pin it at the middle of your neck opening. Match up the notches on the collar with the shoulder seams. Have the corner of your collar end at the zipper teeth.
Continue pinning your collar on, stretching evenly as needed. Sew the collar onto our jacket. Next we are going to add our welt pockets. You will have marked the front of your fabric with the placement of your pocket. Take your longer pocket piece and place along the long line, right side facing up. Mark the overlap on both the top and bottom of the pocket.
Make sure you backstitch at both the start and stop. Now we are going to cut along the center of your pocket, on our original pattern marking. Repeat for the other end. Push your pocket pieces through the cut you made. We will now be working from the wrong side of the jacket.
