either a sewing machine with a stretch stitch or an overlocker/serger.
If choosing tab and top stitching options then you will need a sewing machine/coverstitch.
Fusible fleece or interfacing for tabs and if using snaps in hood/collar.
Buttons sized between 24mm-28mm or kam snaps. You will need one button or snap for each tab piece. Two/three buttons are needed for the hood/collar (larger sizes can opt to use 3 buttons).
3+ kam snaps are needed for the hood/collar – larger sizes can opt to use more. If the double snap option is used then you will need snaps for both sides of the hood/collar.
