… a Minoru jacket! I’ve worked on this for a while, hit a snag or a challenge, put it away, and then let it lie for several months before taking it out again. It’s not ideal to work on it in this way, since I have a tendency to totally forget what I was doing, and what changes I might have made!
I’ve been trying to figure out a way to avoid the raw edges inside the hood that I’ve seen some people have been a little less happy with. I honestly understand why the pattern doesn’t include a way to enclose this seam – it’s tricky! There really isn’t a way of finishing the seams together before sewing the lining to the jacket, since those two layers are sewn together right sides facing and then flipped around. I might try trimming down the seam allowance, topstitch the collar seam, and enclose them that way. This is making sense in my head. I’ll try to take some pictures, and I’ll share them if it works out.
