Pattern Details

This pattern is a very easy to sew swing jacket that has a flattering strong vertical front neckline, bracelet length sleeves, a timeless vintage inspired silhouette, and only requires 2 yards of 55" wide fabric for all sizes. It includes sizes S -3XL. (See photos for sizing information.) Great for layering, and can be made in woven or knits in weights from sheer to mid-weight linen to wool melton or polar fleece or sweatshirt fleece depending on the season. This jacket is easy to wear and easy to make with convenient on seam pockets, and the entire jacket is two pattern pieces: The jacket body (including sleeves and pockets) and the neckband. There are optional instructions for finishing either with standard turn and fold topstitching hems or with hemstitching for a vintage look. Enjoy!
