Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Medium Sewing Skills

Pattern Description:

This festive jacket design was the answer to finding a way to increase the size for generous sized women when I was making my jackets from sweatshirts to sell. This design has become a wonderfully stylish jacket appropriate for any 'celebration' occasion. I've worn the black one to holiday parties - and no one believes that it started as...a sweatshirt!
BOTH methods for fit are now included in this pattern! If taking out sweatshirt excess under the arm as I did for both of these jackets, use a size sweatshirt just big enough for you - NO bigger. Patterns are included PDF in the pattern to 'see' the sweatshirt as 'fabric + matching ribbing' - in which case, use a 2XL sweatshirt. This is a Talking Pattern which means at the URL given in the pattern, you will find ALL the photos of EVERY step, along with my personally-recorded audio directions for each step IN ADDITION to the written directions in the pattern!
