Description

I’ve been wearing this jacket (ignore the fact that it’s winter) for about 6 months. LOVE italthough at times I think it needs shape in the body.

I liked the jacket as is from the magazine (#121 04/2010) so attempted to recreate it. I think I got damn close. I had some initial problems with the pockets and with the lining (it melted and then I thought it was too short so added additional fabric bad idea).

Note that I graded the pattern up in size and added length to the arms and torso.
If I were to redo this pattern I would eliminate the lining and use bound seems, and double the cuffs, meaning cut four cuffs out (like a yoke). This would make it much more functional.

Material Notes

The silk-like blue lining melted on me when I attempted to iron it, so I doubt that it’s a natural fiber. It’s also quite warm in the summer so that jacket becomes unwearable then.

The binding that I used on the pockets should have been doubled or reinforced. It’s a bit light weight for all the use that the pockets get.

Using heavy cotton for the outer shell was perfect. It’s a great weight and holds the shape well.
