The entire process began with my machine refusing to do a zigzag stitch. After much frustration and some sewing machine cleaning, I managed to resolve the issue. I feel like these first wobbly zigzag stitches I managed to do are worth sharing, a lot of work and not so pretty language lies within these bad boys.
I then proceeded onto adding some details to the back piece of the jacket. Nothing special, but it's a detail easy to miss since it's in the back.
The shoulders of the jacket are decorated as well. I made the decorations using an orange fabric and some bias tape. I despise working with bias tape.... However these turned out ok. I did redo one of them after this image was taken, since they aren't exactly the same.
I the attached all of the pieces, and worked a bit on the lining as well. I remade the applique on the front of the jacket after this picture was taken, since it looked hideous. Oh and I also made an inner pocket, that you can't see here since it's on the inside. But I sort of fell in love with pockets after making Sinon, so I just had to put one somewhere on this cosplay as well~
The jacket is really starting to come together here, after just one week of work.
Yay, MORE mirror selfies. In this picture I have attached the facing all around the jacket. All the edges are really neat looking for now. Adding the facing was thefinately one of the most nerv wrecking parts so far. It was one of thos steps that is supposed to make everything look prettier. If it had turned out bad, I wouldn't have known what the heck to do. Luckily it turned out ok.
Yay, neat edges ftw! Yes little fold left of the zipper. I see you. You're not gonna exist for much longer >:( This is how the jacket looks like closed. Or well, how the bottom part looks like closed haha.
And finally, a shot showcasing the inside and the facing. All that is left is to add the collar and the lining, which probably is going to take forever, but I like pretending that I am almost done.
Anyway, that is it for this post. Hopefully I'll finish this jacket somewhat soon, and you'll all get to see how it turned out. I have a wig on its way as well, and it reached Finland yesterday (Friday) so I'll most likely get it some time next week. I'm thinking about doing a review again like I did with my Sinon wig, so maybe you'll get some of that as well. Take care~
