This jacket is the ultimate versatile piece which works well all year round. Make it in everything from wools & wax cottons to unlined versions in heavy linens and cottons.
Our PDF Pattern comes with in depth written instructions, an A4 tile copy and an A0 version.
Skill level:Intermediate sewers (you'll need extra focus for the welt pockets)
Sizing: Sizes 6 - 20 are included in this pattern. Our sizes run true to UK sizing - for full sizing details see below in the drop down menu.
Fit notes: This is a neat fit with full length sleeves and straight body shape. If you're sewing this piece in wool you might consider a size up to allow for bulky winter layering (optional suggestion, please check the sizing chart before cutting).
Construction techniques: Welt pockets, 2-piece sleeve, collar & facing and a full lining.
Suitable fabrics: This piece works in a huge range of fabrics, from wools and wax cottons to heavy cottons & linens. You can always leave summer variations of this jacket unlined.
Materials list:Fabric, lining fabric, 5 x medium buttons (around 2.5-3cm), thread, about 40cm of good quality fusing (if you're choosing to make in wool you might like to piece fuse both front pieces - for this you'll need 1m of good quality woven fusing)

You will receive both an A4 & A0 digital pattern along with step by step sewing instructions. You can either print your pattern at home on an A4 printer or send the A0 digital copy to a printing shop (there are many that do this for a very reasonable price). If you decide to print in A4 you will need to piece the tiles together to make one huge page. There is a guide on how to do this included in the instructions.
