When I started the jacket, I thought I would need a week from start to finish. But I got so many last minute orders for work last week (good thing as such, it provides the money needed for sewing), that the jacket is far from completed.
I stitched the seams flat with a handstitch, because they tended to stay up, even after pressing.
Then I sewed the collar and understitched as far as possible on the inside, as I do not use any topstitching on the jacket. The pictures show the inside and outside of the collar. The pink are basting stitches, and on the lower part the marking of the seamline.
So the next step will be sewing the collar to the jacket and making the sleeves.
If you want to have a chance to try Knip Mode patterns, you still have till tomorrow to enter your name in the comments on the previous post. The lucky number will be determined (by my readers) on Wednesday.
And I'll add one other giveaway: a piece of stretch lace that I bought quite some time ago, but I never managed to get the right lycra with it. I have quite a lot of complete kits in my stash, it's unlikely that I'll use this any time soon, so I'll give it away.
The lace is 20 cm (=8 inch) wide and 1.80 mtr long (=2 yards). Place a comment saying you'd like the lace with this post. Other comments welcome too of course.
And Lindsay: sewing from BWOF is not obligatory! Tastes differ, and we all respect that.
