Lay the main FRONT and BACK pieces right sides together. Pin and stitch the shoulder seams. Finish with an over locker or zig-zag.

Fold the SLEEVE CUFF piece in half and pin onto the SLEEVE. Stitch and finish the seam allowance. Repeat for both sleeves.

Pin the SLEEVE right sides together with FRONT 1 and BACK, easing it into the armscye. Stitch and finish the seam. Repeat for the left side.

Attach the cuff to BACK and FRONT 2 as in step 8.

Pin and stitch the hood to the neckline,

Finish the HOOD seam allowance around the neckline.

Fold in half the OPENING CUFF and begin pinning starting at one of the lower leg opening seam allowances, RIGHT SIDES together. Ease the OPENING CUFF around.

TIP: fold the end seam allowances of the OPENING CUFF inside itself before pinning to hide the raw edge, or pin it to curve off the edge of the leg seam allowance to give it a rounded edge.

If you are using the HOOD, pin the OPENING CUFF from lower leg to lower leg going around the HOOD edge.

If you are not using the HOOD, simply continue the OPENING CUFF around the neckline and back down to the lower leg. Curve the OPENING CUFF at the neckline point instead of trying to get it into the angle.

Finish the seam allowance using zig zag stitch or an overlocker stitch.
