Begin by cutting out the back guitar piece, followed by the two front pieces (cut from the same pattern piece. Ensure to add the 1.5cm seam allowance to the cutline.
Apply a small square of the oil cloth fabric to both ends of the zip. This will be folded back and used to neaten the edge of the zip once inserted into the seam.
Lay the inside pocket section right side up against the wrong side of Front 2. Sellotape the inside pocket to the outer pocket in three places, two at the top and one at the bottom center. The less pieces of sellotape you have to use the better!
The top edge of the inside pocket piece should reach above the seam allowance of the Front 1. Secure and sew Front 1 seam allowance to Pocket seam allowance.
Create the neck loop lay laying the edges of the neck loop webbing under the neck support strap, ensuring to keep the centre point central. Lay the end of the straps under the support and fold back. Repeat for securing the straps to the lower support.
Stitch as in step 7 and secure to the Back as in step 8.
Now its time to stitch the Panel to the Front. Begin at the bottom center matching the points. Tape at regular intervals. Because this is not a very secure method for temporarily holding the fabric, it will shift. You may find it easier to simply sew straight away and carefully adjust the seam allowances as you go. If you choose to do this, go very slowly and patiently! Ensure to stitch the Pocket into this seam also.
At the point where the zip is inserted, snip the seam allowance of one side so that the seam allowance can come together and allow the zip to lay flat and be stitched to the Panel.
