I'm planning on making View A of this jacket (the denim jacket), and, while this pattern has been reviewed several times, I don't see any reviews for View A.

The pattern includes a piece called "block for trim," a bias piece which is handled as follows:

"Cut block for trim along solid lines, making six strips. Pin WRONG side of trim to RIGHT side of collar, over-lapping ends of trim as necessary. Cut away excess. Stitch close along both edges of trim."

At this point, the collar is already constructed so you're sewing these pieces of trim to a finished edge. My question is: does this sound as though you're sewing bias strips of fabric with raw edges to the edge of the previously constructed collar?!? If so, it sounds like a step I will skip.

I think you're reading that correctly. It's hard to get a close look at that collar but it looks like it has a raw edged trim on it.

Thanks, Chris. I think I will opt for some nice topstitching.

I don't see it in the picture, maybe too narrow, but it sure sounds like trim to me too.

But with a raw edge, right?

It's hard to see on the picture, although I did enlarge it but I agree with Chris that it looks like you are attaching the trim about an inch inside of the outside of the collar and then topstitching and cutting the excess away to give a nice (if you like) frayed detail. Because it is on the bias, it won't all wash away. (the trim) It would be nice if you liked it.

It's a cute jacket in denim. I would skip that step too. I am not all that fond of the raw edge.
