My version of New look 6416 is complete.
The fabric had two good sides, so I played with using the one with more white threads on the sleeves, belt and showing when the collar folds open, with the plainer side for the body and belt loops. Its subtle but I like it.
In the end I did a 6cm hem on the sleeves, and a chunky rolled hem (1cm) round the collar and hem sewn in one go. I omitted any pockets as the fabric has a very open weave and I felt they would pull.
What a great piece. Lovely pairing of fabric and pattern.
I am not surprised that you selected the perfect fabric for this pattern, and the finished product is stunning. (I might be slightly biased because teal is my favorite color.)
It's very nice and looks to be super versatile! Great job. Enjoy.
Love your jacket, both the pattern and your fabric choice. Such a versatile piece for your wardrobe. Great job!
