Sewing The Denim Jacket - The Sew Along Tutorial


Hi Everyone! Welcome to part 2 - the full sew-along tutorial. Now that you've had some time to practice some of the sewing techniques used in the pattern design, we can jump right in and begin making our jackets.

The sew along video is demonstrated on using the pieces from the 14.5" Wellie size pattern. The techniques are the same no matter which size you are making. 


Special Note - The pattern includes cut lines and instructions to make the jacket with flat felled seams (fully enclosed) or faux felled seams (exposed seam allowances, finished with a zigzag or serger). The tutorial is sewn with the faux felled seam style, if you'd like to use the flat felled seam style, refer to the earlier video (pieces are sewn wrong sides together first, not right sides together). Also be sure you have cut the pieces on the correct lines for the corresponding seam style. Blue  - faux felled 1/4" seam allowance. Black Flat Felled 3/8" seam allowance.
