Casual Bomber Jacket and Midi Skirt with Hip Yoke

Added Aug 18, 2015

Nedre Vats, Norway






Since I had some sweatshirt fabric left from my dress I decided to try sewing this casual jacket. Maybe the fabric was a bit heavy, but I like how it turned out. I have used piping for decoration and I think the jacket will be perfect together with jeans :)

I’m very happy with my first skirt of this pattern and I wanted a white for holiday as well. Since I’ve used cotton voile it was very transparent, so I lined it with the same fabric as well.

Material Notes

Sweatshirt for the jacket and cotton voile for the skirt.




Spring, Summer, Fall
Garment Type
Cotton, Knits/Jersey

    Awesome outfit ! The white skirt is just as nice as your original. I really like this jacket design, and you have made such a neat jacket with it. Giving me ideas. :-) I came across an amazing deal on lace for this jacket, and thought to make it over the winter, as it will be great for next time we go to Vegas.

    I love this casual bomber!! I bought the magazine just for this pattern, but I wanted to wait for someone to use it first. Yours is really beautiful and the print is so cute. Now I have another pattern waiting for me haha It is lined? It could be interesting to see the interior of your garments :)

      That’s nice Maude – I’m looking forward to see your version! Normally I don’t line sweatshirt or jersey, so I have only used the serger for the seams inside :)

    You are so happy with your figure… I even don’t know any other woman who could wear such a jacket with such a chic! The skirt is really happy for you. The more your variants I see, the more I want to make it:-)) Very nice!

    Great jacket and I like the fabric a lot and the piping is just great on it! I’m sure it looks fantastic to jeans but also to your new skirt! Love how it falls and seem to float!! Great outfit!

    Digger jakken! Og bildet ditt er allerede på mønsteret til kjørtet så det er ikke mye mer man kan si om saken ☺
