    Final Product: What You Will Create

    Preface:
    The 2018 trend for brides is a “Bridal Jacket”. Choose a beautiful design and add the text of your choice. Instead of using the colors as specified in the color sequence, choose colors the bride has chosen for her big day. There are three different sizes of this design—the largest one was chosen for this project. If you have a hoop large enough, the design and text can all be stitched in one hooping.


    Step 1:
    Gather the materials and read through the instructions before beginning. Print out a paper template of each of the designs and color sequence after the next step has been completed.

    Step 2:
    Software is optional for this project. If you have a machine that will create text, it can be added at the machine. If you have software, then sometimes it is easier to add the text in the software. Choose what you would like the text to say. It could have the bride’s initials, a first name only, and a wedding date could be added if the jacket is to be worn for a bachelorette party. Load the design in the software and save it as a new design. Rotate the design if needed (this project is going on a multi-needle machine so it was rotated 180 degrees.) Choose the text color from one of the colors in the design. For the project, the deep pink was chosen.

    Step 3:
    For the machine used to stitch the project, it is easier to align when the start point is moved; the bottom middle was chosen (because the design has been rotated).

    Step 4:
    Print out a template of the design. As you can see, by moving the start point, the cross-hair is moved to the bottom of the page.

    Step 5:
    Examine the jacket. For the jacket you purchase there may be one or two options for stitching. Some jackets may have an attached lining so the stitching would show on the back side. If the lining is separate from the jacket, a nice touch is to sew through the jacket only so the lining covers up the back of the stitching. Determine which type of jacket you have. If the lining is separate, use a seam ripper to remove the lining stitching at the bottom of the jacket.

    Step 6:
    For this jacket, it was only necessary to remove it from side seam to side seam.

    Step 7:
    Find the center back of the jacket by matching the shoulder seams and side seams; place pins along the center back. Cut out the template of the design and align the crosshairs to the jacket back.

    Step 8:
    It us usually best if the bottom of the design doesn’t fall beyond the bottom of the armhole seam—that is usually a good guide. For this design it places the top of the design about 6” below the neck edge. Pin the template in place.

    Step 9:
    Place the hoop on the machine and align the needle to the cross-hair. Be sure to do a trace to make sure the design fits within the hoop sewing field.

    Step 10:
    Hoop the jacket back with the stabilizer. Load the design and stitch following the color sequence.

    Step 11:
    After the design has stitched, remove the project from the hoop and trim away the excess stabilizer. Pin the bottom of the lining to the bottom of the jacket and hand-stitch the lining in place.

    Step 12:
    Congratulations on creating a beautiful jacket for a bride. Using the same design, jackets could also be created for all members of the bridal party (just change the text to maid of honor, bridesmaid, flower girl, mother of the bride, etc.) to wear to showers and parties and would be a beautiful remembrance of a wonderful day.
