|At the last minute I decided to add a collar to this jacket pattern.|
|This is the napped fabric that inspired the post sewing with napped fabrics.|
|I recently found a store with some really funky zipper pulls. There was a large gold cat as a zipper pull...but that is another post....|
|The fabric is both napped and has a design so I chose to do very little top-stitching. The top-stitching here is actually the seam for the zipper.|
|Now that I have discovered a whole world of sewing blogs, I would chose a fun, contrasting fabric to line the jacket but when I started this jacket I was very happy at finding a matching lining.|
|I love how easily I was able to fit the lining inside the jacket and hide all the seam finishes!|
So now I have a pretty jacket to wear with all the summer dresses I plan to make.
