A casual jacket is an essential addition to any wardrobe. Creating your very own ensures a perfect fusion of comfort and style. Dive into this DIY project, featuring a belted hooded jacket crafted from luxuriously soft fabric, and follow the step-by-step picture tutorial to make it with ease.
– You can use honeycomb cotton or terry cloth to make this jacket.
– In case your fabric lacks stretch, consider adding a small 7mm hem at the bottom of the sleeves.
– Mark the sides with guidelines for easy alignment, ensuring the underarm and pocket positions are spot on.
– Given the thickness of the fabric, we recommend making flat seams. Cross the edges of the pieces, approximately at the ends, by 1 cm and double-stitch. Alternatively, if you prefer, you can assemble the pieces in the traditional way, stitching them together against end, about 5 mm from the edge. Later, open the seams and topstitch on each side of the stitching.
