Sewing Notes

  • Did the fabric you used work well?: It was decent. The ultra cuddle didn't slip as much as I expected it to against the sweatshirt fleece and the twill added the weight and stiffness I needed for the zipper placket.
  • How did the sewing go?: Fairly well. I did have to rip out a few seams as I went along. And I didn't plan to sew elastic into the bottom hem of the jacket, but the fabrics dictated that something needed to be different with the hem line.
  • How difficult was the sewing?: required thought
