Question Alice (Pandora Hears) coat help - the zigzag around the coat

Hi, so right now I'm making Alice's coat, but I don't really know how to make the zigzag that separates the crimson from the white. How do I sew it, and when I'm drafting the pattern for it, how do I draw it so it continues from the front piece to the back in one continuous zigzag?


Thanks in advance!

I would cut the coat in white, then make the red part just a very large applique.

Draw on your pattern (or make a copy and draw on it) to determine the zig zag layout. I assume there is a side seam as well as a center back, use the seam points as the higher points (the zigs if you will) and then measure and draw to get the lower points (the zags). I'd use a ruler and calculate the lower points so they are exactly centered on the pattern panel in front, the transfer this same measurement to the back.
Nothing is impossible, but some things are very expensive. Instagram: penlowe
