The chill is in the air. Fall festivals are popping up everywhere. Crisp apples, pumpkin drinks, and the smell of fall surrounds us. My kids have switched out their T-shirts and shorts for long jeans and hoodies. It is also the season for jackets. There is nothing I like more than a good jacket! Here are some great patterns I have found so that you can create one of your very own.
Jacket with tails I made this pattern a while ago for a costume. I found the sleeves were really long but other than that it was a easy enough pattern, plus it is a free PDF!
Talea is a cute overcoat pattern available from Burda to be printed at home. It would be so nice if made from a luxurious wool, and could you imagine what fun you could have with all the buttons?
Bed Jacket Oh, how I wish to wear a silk bed coat and eat bon-bons in bed. That is unlikely, but I could at least make myself a sweet little bed coat to wear for the run to the bus stop.
This is a free pattern, though you have to draft it yourself as it is just directions and a diagram. This is from a vintage pattern book, I love that it gives us a look at a different era.
Here is another pattern from Burda, the Silk Motorcycle Jacket. It is so pretty, I think I will have to add it to my sewing list! I love the asymmetrical zipper and the slanted zipper pockets.
Available here at Woolstock, the Midtown Trench is a fantastic fall jacket. It is a favorite for many of our customers, too. I even wrote a post about it. I love that there is so many ways to be creative with this jacket, you could do color blocking on the different pieces, embroider the collar and cuffs, or just pick a fantastic fabric.
Another customer favorite is the Little Somethin’ Jacket. It is perfect for those days when you just need a little somethin’ for the chill. It is loose and unstructured but full of feminine elegance.
