A very, very cropped jean-jacket

I have been playing with the “fitted jacket pattern” from the book “Built by Wendy Coats & Jackets”, and while I haven’t made any of the actual projects from the book yet, I’ve been having loads of fun going off on my own. I’ve also been wanting a really cropped jean jacket for a long time.

More details on the pattern drafting and construction here

Material Notes

A lightweight denim with a hint of sparkle (left over from this project
Also some scraps of red cotton gauze and some pre-made red bias tape I had lying around to do hong-kong bindings on the seams. I used the triple-straight-stitch on my machine with regular red thread for the topstitching.




Garment Type
Casual, Punk, Rock

      I like it, but then the idea of altering a block to add my own details really appeals to me. I found mine at my local Chapters so you may not have to look too hard for it. Although be warned—-there’s no ease included in this particular pattern!

      Oooh thanks for the warning.
      And yes, I suppose I WILL be able to go to a Chapters and pick up a copy soon enough – we are moving to greater Vancouver in 2 weeks! So long small-town Shuswap! :’( Hello shopping malls! lol
