You will need

  • Thread
  • Sewing machine
  • Iron
  • A4 paper with printer
  • Woven fabric (this jacket suits most woven fabrics such as cotton, hemp, wool, linen or tencel. Twills and denims work best for a structured look. Check out the links on our sustainable fabric directory for shops that sell sustainable options):

This pattern requires fabric of 140cm wide or more. When ordering fabric, make sure you order enough to account for shrinkage (most fabrics need to be shrunk via washing before being cut):

Fabric width:  6-12 14-20 22-24
150cm wide  1.8M (1.9M*) 2M (2.1M*) 2.1M (2.2M*)
140cm wide  1.8M (1.9M*) 2.1M (2.2M*) 2.1M (2.2M*)

*including 5% extra for shrinkage. Some fabrics may shrink more than 5%. Please check your fabric supplier for information specific to the fabric you are using. If in doubt, buy a little more- you can always make yourself a matching scrunchie!

Printing instructions

Make sure your printer is aligned before printing. Open the pdf pattern and select the layer corresponding to your size, deselecting the other sizes. Print the pattern with no scaling (this may be listed as ‘actual size’ or ‘100%’). There is a 1cm test square on page 1 that you can measure with. a ruler to check that you have printed it out correctly. After printing, lay out the pages referring to the codes in the pink circles (numbers refer to rows and letters to columns), butting the edges up together (do not overlap or cut). Stick the pages together using tape.


Size & fit

This pattern includes sizes 6-24 (please view our size chart for full details). Please let us know if you are waiting for further sizes of this pattern.

We always recommend making a mock-up of the jacket in inexpensive fabric to check fit before making it in your final fabric.

    What a lovely project! I enjoyed the process soo much that I made it in just over a day! I have basic sewing skills but haven’t made anything in a while and have never done ruffles before! The instructions were understandable, and reading them once through before starting helped loads! As did labelling the pieces with front, back, etc.

    The final garment has come out better than I could imagine! I used a structured wool, so can’t wait to make another out of lighter cotton! I also was able to use an overlocker, which elevates the final jacket 🙂

    Thanks! 🙂
