The fabric had such a loose weave that I had to do some extra stitching to keep everything from raveling apart. This is an unlined jacket so I used mock french seams to enclose the seams on the inside. That made the seams stronger and will prevent raveling and also gives a nice finished appearance to the inside. Although you can hardly see it I used one of my tacking stitches on my Bernina 200E right about each pleat. The stitch is an arrow tack stitch. One royal blue button and a buttonhole finish the jacket. An easy jacket to make and a nice jacket to wear.
