Jacket Sewing Patterns – Style and Function in One
When it comes to jacket sewing patterns, function takes precedence over form – so thick fabrics and practical features are the norm. But that doesn’t mean they can’t be stylish too!
Discover our range of stunning jacket-dresses in a variety of styles. Take the workwear-inspired Wrap jacket, for example. It’s fitted with front pockets and a fabric tie for added security.
The Pilvi coat dress is a fitted and flattering dress sewing pattern that is designed to look like a coat with long sleeves, double breasted button closure and notch lapels. It has a belt at the waist and handy patch pockets sewn in the front seams. The dress is made for knit fabric and can be worn over a tank top or shirt.
This is one of the five basic garment patterns in Lotta’s Everyday Style book. The other pattern we love in this book is the Esme tunic. Both the Pilvi coat and the Esme tunic are modeled in the book by women over 50, which we really appreciate!
The Pilvi is easy to make, but it’s important to trace/cut all the pieces before you start sewing. When you cut the sleeve and back neck facing, don’t forget that they attach to the front jacket piece at the edge where it folds back. If you skip this step, the sleeve and neck facing will be 2 inches shorter and won’t line up with the front pieces.
The Wrap jacket is a simple, versatile pattern that can be sewn in woven or jersey fabric. The pattern includes separate front pattern pieces for woven or knit fabric options and two collar styles. It’s an easy sew that will look dressy in a brocade and casual in denim, depending on your choice of fabrics. It’s also great for beginners because it requires no hand sewing and no pattern marking.
It’s designed to be a comfy and cozy layer in the office or at home, with raglan sleeves and clean lines for a mix of comfort and put-togetherness. The pattern is available in sizes XS to XL adults, and includes a fully-lined, oversized wrap belt. It’s a climate-positive garment, made in Spain from fabrics sourced from European regenerative agriculture farms and fully circular.
This paper sewing pattern from The Assembly Line is slightly oversized, with a crossover front that features matching fabric ties and large front pockets. It’s a versatile pattern that can be styled with jeans or our Almost Long trousers. It’s recommended for medium to heavy weight fabrics such as denim, cotton twill, and lightweight canvas. Sizing is based on chest measurement. The pattern is carefully packaged in an envelope and includes step-by-step sewing instructions.
