I am about to make a jacket from my stash and realize I am very short on fabric. I have very little experience sewing fleece.
I am thinking to save fabric I would make a completely one layer jacket w/a shawl collar and turned up cuffs. The fleece is two colors, light green one side and dark green the other. So, in theory, the turned back cuffs and collar will contrast nicely.
My questions are:
- Will this work without any interior structure (no interfacings, etc)? It’s Polar Fleece 200.
- Somewhere I thought I read one could finished edges by turning under 1/2 and zigzagging the cut edge. Is this right? Can I turn the edges to the right side (providing contrast) and successfully have it look professional.
Any helpful ideas welcomed. I am totally new to this chat. What happened to SewWorld?
