from Frocks & Frolics
(9) Name: 'Sewing : Girls Vintage Jacket Ursula (A4)
Girls Vintage Jacket Ursula (A4) Jacket
Girls Vintage Jacket Ursula (A4) Sleeves with turn ups
Girls Vintage Jacket Ursula (A4) gathered insert

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Sticking to seam allowances
  • Gathering
  • Putting in a sleeve
  • Applying binding

Pattern Description:

Please note that printing this pattern in the US may result in parts being cut off as its for A4 printers. My new version will be available in the spring for both formats.
On the smaller sizes the front is a bit tight across the chest so check before you put a buttonhole in. If its not tight brilliant, if it is just use a rouleaux loop instead!

This free online class available to you via You Tube will teach you how to make this cute jacket. It's suitable for someone with sewing experience.Your girl will love this jacket . It has a shawl collar which is adorned with wide bias binding. The back has an adorable gather insert which for one looks super cute but it also makes it more comfortable to wear. Mix and match fabrics for the binding and lining to create a variety of fun looks.

Whether you are an expert or just starting out the video tutorial will make it very clear what you have to do. If you are unsure if you can handle this pattern then simply watch the video to reassure yourself before you purchase the pattern. And for all those of you that love to keep all instruction neatly in a folder,my instructions booklet (attached to size 2) contains page after page with photo's just to make doubly sure you know what to do.

The pattern is available for immediate download so you can get started straight away.

Your pattern comes with all the sizes - 4,6,8 & 9
None of my patterns are multi sized so there is one size per file, this saves a lot of paper and confusion as to which line you have to cut.

Every pattern is hand drafted and then imported into a CAD program to make sure you have a pattern that fits and looks good too! No pattern is automatically graded or computer generated with software. Having trained as a tailor 30 years ago I know that pattern generating software can never replace the skill of a pattern drafted by hand. Try my patterns and you will love the fit. No loose armholes that are cut too low or sleeves that hang of the shoulder.

The Ursula pattern pack includes:

assembly instructions
Your pattern comes with the sizes - 4,6,8 & 9
