Well after a lot of debating on the style and color etc of zip, I finally decided this morning that it would be black with silver metal teeth. Thanks to Liz for getting me the long one, and manage to get the sleeve ones in town here.
So the jacket is now a shell! It's all ready for the zip to be inserted, which is fabulous. What an easy pattern. http://www.simplicity.com/p-3061-misses-jackets.aspx
Still loving my overlocker, amazing how much better it goes, when it's been threaded properly - Funny that really.
Later this week my zip will arrive, and I'll be ready to put it in. Can't wait!
The inside, looks just like plain cotton.
And the outside, it's not as shiny as this, kind of a deep grey.
