Part three ,,,,,,,,, Fitting the hood to the body

First off don't leave your project lying about ,,



Time to get the scissors out and cut a hole for your neck :D



Turn it inside out and pin and tack the hood to the body , I blanket stiched it into place



Run a seam of stiches all around the hood fixing it to the body



Turn it the correct way round and pin and tack the seam flat



Now run a seam around the hood to flatten the seam ,



That's the hard work finished part four to follow :)

Good afternoon ,,, Part Five .

Turn the jacket and arm inside out and pin and tack trying not to sew the arm on inside out :(



Hopefully the arm a body sleeve that were folded over are don't bunch to much ,



Run two sets of stiches around the arm to body seams turn the right way around and pin and tack the seam flat



Sew the seams flat ,



Next I sewn on a leather patch to re-enforce a cord around the base of the shirt ,



Pin and tack the base of the shirt with the cord in place ,



Then stich the base of the shirt this may call for some singer hanging :)





Sort out the cord lock for the base



That's about it just need to add some cord locks to the hood .

Thanks very much for one of the best and clearest tutorials I've read, and on a subject most seem to find hard to grasp; excellent stuff!

Oh yeah, and the shirt looks great!
