Supplies for Ziggi Moto Jacket



I thought I would share some of the notion information today for my Style Arc Ziggi Jacket


If you are like me, sometimes finding the notions for a project is difficult.  Joann Stores has zippers but sometimes they don't have enough in stock.  Not to mention with the Ziggi you need four short zippers and one long separating zipper.

So first, the pattern is available on the Style Arc Site and I bought mine on Amazon but it isn't currently listed.


Let's talk zippers, which I found at Wawak.  First let's clarify, the pattern states, 6 inch zippers but inside it is marked for 5 inch. That is fine, you can adjust, plus 5 inch is small for you hand. The 6 inch zipper, is here with lots of colors. The separating zipper is here again with lots of colors.

The snaps were from Joann's and used the Dritz tool.

The faux leather is Minerva


I think that is it for the notions, I just wanted to share for the zippers.  I am so happy Wawak has a good supply and so many colors, plus their shipping is fast.

Vogue 1635


What is a sleeper pattern?  Well to me it is a pattern that at first gets overlooked and then another sewists points it out and you think oh I have to have that!
