Add some spice to your closet with this blissfully exotic jacket, perfect for medium-weight, drape-y fabrics like washed linen, denim, stable double knits, cotton jacquard, supple boucle or tweed, or even a heavy crepe.
Semi-fitted hip-length Jacket has panel seams, a shaped center back seam, and buttoned flap pockets.
Jacket has a classic collar & rever, curved front hem, a half belt at the back, and fastens with five buttons at the center front. Full-length two piece sleeves finish with buttoned cuffs. Optional lining and shoulder pads make this jacket truly versatile.
This is a real all-occasion piece...make it in a luxe fabric to add glamour to your jeans-and-T outfit; try it in a soft suiting fabric to match a slick pencil skirt or wide, tailored pants for a fabulous suit; or just make it in a classic neutral for a great jacket you’ll be wearing forever.
For sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16 you’ll need around 2 1/2 yards/2.06m fabric, (add the same amount
of fusible interfacing if you plan to interface the entire jacket) plus 1 3/4 yards/1.60m lining.
For sizes 18-20-22-24-26 you’ll need around 3 yards/2.75m fabric, (add the same amount
of fusible interfacing if you plan to interface the entire jacket) plus 2 yards/1.85m lining.
You’ll also need 11 X 5/8”/1.6cm diameter buttons, and if you aren’t already interfacing the entire jacket,
don’t forget 3/4 yard/68cm of fusible interfacing; a pair of 1/2”/1.25cm shoulder pads are optional.
All fabric amounts are for 60”/150cm wide fabric.
