1) Neaten all pieces using a zigzag stitch. Apply fusible interfacing to the front piece facings and, if applicable (vest), to the armhole facings. Please adhere to manufacturer’s instructions.
6 ) Press the seam allowance into the front center piece.
12 ) Pin the right front piece to the center front piece, right sides together. Make sure the marks match up. Make sure to position the right part of the zipper between the two pieces and to pin it down as well. The teeth of the zipper start where the zipper is marked in the pattern. Pin the overlapping fabric of the zipper to the side.
18 ) Pin the sleeve cuffs to the sleeves, right sides together. The lower sleeve seams match up. Sew and press the seam allowances up.
19 ) Pin the sleeves to the armhole, right sides together. The seams of the lower arm and the side seams match up. The mark for the shoulder matches up with the shoulder seam. Heed the mark on the sleeve indicating the front piece.
20 ) Pin undercollar to the head opening, right sides together and sew. Sew “around the corner” like this: stop 2cm before the corner, leave the needle down in the fabric and lift the footer. Next make a notch of 0.9 cm in the seam allowance of the corner of the head opening (heed the mark in the pattern) and carefully pull apart. Sew as far as the corner; again leave needle down in the fabric and turn the jacket by 90 degrees, lower the footer and sew. It is important that you sew just above the notch to avoid leaving a hole. Press seam allowances of the front pieces apart, of the back piece upward.
23 ) Pin the facing of the left front piece to the lower edge of the bottom cuff and sew. Press seam allowance upward. Now “pull up” the hemline including facing and turn over: the right part of the hemline (heed mark), the front edges and the edges of the collar over the front facings and the upper collar.
25 ) Turn facings to the inside of the jacket and sew along the diagonal seams. Turn over the bottom cuff (where there is still a raw edge) by 1cm and hand-sew to the seam allowance. In the same way turn over the seam allowance of the upper collar head opening by 1cm and hand-sew to the seam allowance.
