Skill level: Intermediate
This is a multi-size paper pattern in an envelope, including sizes 8 – 18. Seam allowances are included in the pattern at 1.5cm unless otherwise stated. All decorative topstitching is optional. For the men’s pattern, you lengthen the pattern where indicated.
Please note this is a ‘pull over your head’ jacket so you will need room to manoeuvre.
You will also need:
2.5M of 15mm/25mm webbing or a drawstring cord.
Optional 2 metal eyelets approx 7mm internal diameter. You can make buttonholes as an alternative to eyelets.
Fusible interfacing for pockets and buttonholes/eyelets.
0.25M lining for side pocket bags.
16cm metal zip
#WHO MADE ME?
There are some brands that inspire creativity. Merchant & Mills is top on our list. Their purpose is to make (or more precisely get YOU to make) clothes, not fashion. In curating and designing patterns, fabrics and tools, they make our fingers itch to start designing, cutting and making. The two creators behind the brand are Carolyn Denham, who has a degree in Fashion Design and has worked in New York, Italy and London and Roderick Field, a respected photographer with works in the National Portrait Gallery and keeps the look of the brand through his gorgeous product photos.
