Plaid Fun Jacket

Added Feb 18, 2013

I really needed a casual jacket that wasn’t a sports jacket. I used thrifted wool plaid and felted it a bit. I lined this jacket and added belt loops. So warm! I used one long strip of bias fabric instead of the shaped bands that the pattern suggests. Winter Plaid Jacket

Material Notes

wool, kasha lining, thread




Fall, Winter
Garment Type
Bohemian, Casual
Coating, Corduroy, Denim, Polyester, Suiting, Wool

    Wonderful job! I really like how you used the cut seam allowance showing to add some extra detail. It brings it from nice to wow! Brilliant idea on both the bias strip and the cut seam showing.
