Today I managed to sew the main part of the body and the collar. This is the undercollar after interfacing. Both fabric and hair canvas are cut on the bias. The roll line is stitched with parallel lines. After sewing the upper and under collar together, I turned the seam allowance of the under collar and catchstitched them to the hair canvas. It was all going so smoothly that I forgot to take photos of this step.
Now I’ve constructed the main part I think that I’ve used the wrong color zipper. This zipper is the right color off-white, but it pops out too much. A grey or sand colored zipper will be much better. Though not real fun to unpick the zipper, the jacket is still in a state that it can relatively easy be done, apart from the fact that I’ll have to go to a shop or market tomorrow to buy a new one.
What do you think? (the collar is only provisionally turned, some trimming seams and pressing to be done.
