Description

The Minoru Jacket sew-along with Sewaholic Patterns founder, Tasia, starts this Monday. I planned to participate, but I was just too excited so I already finished it. I made mine out of wool with a tiny black and white houndstooth pattern. The bright red lining is flannel-backed satin — very cozy, very… shiny. I shortened the collar by 2 inches and added exterior pockets. It has an optional hood but I left it off since I never use hoods. Such a practical jacket with a flattering shape!

    It’s great to see this pattern works in wool for a more formal look. Your coat looks lovely. I can’t wait to start mine (eventually).

    Love it! Nice to see the Minoru done in a more formal fabric. That back view is excellent with the elastic!

    Looks amazing! I’m getting ready to sew my first jacket, and it’s great to see nice finished projects for inspiration! The lining is so fun.

    I love your jacket! I’ve wanted to sew one for awhile, but all of those seams and zippers and things make me nervous. Yours is really beautiful.

      Try it! The sew-along will help you, too. The zipper is a separating zipper which I found to be easier to sew in than any other kind of zipper. And raglan sleeves are WAY simpler than set-in sleeves. You can skip the topstitching, too, if you prefer — or use a forgiving patterned fabric like I did to hide wonky stitches!
