ADDING NECKBAND & WAISTBAND: Unisex Seronera Bomber Jacket Sew Along
Today we will be adding neckband and waistband to our jacket. Yesterday we spent it sewing the sleeves and cuffs into the jacket. You can still join and grab your copy of English version OR Dutch version that is still on 40% sale until 24th September 2019.
You will need:
1 piece of waistband
1 piece of neckband, on fold
Shall we begin?
ADDING NECKBAND: Unisex Seronera Bomber Jacket Sew Along
All seam allowances are 3/8” (1 cm) except where noted and are included in the pattern pieces. IMPORTANT: Use a serger, stretch or wide zig zag stitch throughout.
By now you already sew the shoulder seams.
Step 1: Mark the centre on the neckband, and on the neckline of the main jacket and facing or lining.
Step 2: Place the neckband with the RS on the RS of the neckline main jacket and sew.
Put the other long side of the neckband with the RS on the RS of the facing or lining and sew.
Step 3: Only apply for the unlined jacket with facing. Press the facing and the neckband down into the inside of jacket. Secure the back facing into the back jacket by topstiching the edges.

Repeat this step with the facing or lining to the other long side.
