MODULE 1 • Lesson Prep
|1||We have prepared a left and right jacket front cut out of wool flannel. The center front length is 14” (35.6cm) long and the center front facing has been interfaced with a 1 ¾” (4.5cm) wide piece of fusible interfacing to support the zipper stitching. The edges have been pinked to prevent them from raveling.|
|2||On the right side of our jacket fronts, we have marked a white pencil dot, both top and bottom, to indicate the jacket’s center front, which for our jacket is 1 ¼” (3.2cm) away from the facing’s edge.|
|3||We also marked a white pencil line, 1/8” (3mm) away from the dot marks to indicate the zipper stitching line. This measurement is half the width of our #5, 12” (30.5cm) separating zipper coil.|
