Description

Unlined military style jacket with asymmetric button front, pleated patch pockets, bound seams and epaulettes. Only the sleeves are lined. Modified from a BOW Plus Size pattern, Feb 2008. The original pattern had cuffed sleeves and horizontal pleats across the chest, which I removed for a simpler look.


As you can see, this was taken in my kitchen and it looks horrendous on the mannequin. It’s slightly too big for me because I lost weight since I made the toile. I can’t complain about that but the jacket now looks a bit frumpy on me because some parts are too baggy. I took in the side seams as much as I could but really, the only way to fix it is to take it apart and reposition and widen the front darts.

Material Notes

Canvas-weight stretch drill, bias binding, polyester bemsilk lining. I didn’t use interfacing because the material was thick enough as is. The buttons are actually plastic, not brass.
