Hovea Sewalong: View ACE Belt & Belt Loops

Hovea View A, C & E Belt & Belt Loops

This is the final post of our Hovea jacket construction! If you’ve decided to skip the ties, and add a belt and beltloops instead – that is what we will be finishing up today. This works best with the longer view C, or even the mid-length view A. It really wouldn’t work with the cropped version, though, FYI. And also – it doesn’t have to just be for the collar band versions. You could also do this with the quilted longer view D as well! So many options.

Ok, let’s finish this up…

Place the belt loops on the right side of the coat, over the side seams, in the desired position.
