Erica and I are IN LOVE with Sewaholic’s Minoru jacket pattern. So in love, in fact, that we have made 8 jackets between the two of us! The pattern provides the perfect raincoat for our Oregon winters, a super sweet vintage wool coat or the ideal lightweight windbreaker.
This pattern is full of skill building techniques that make it the perfect project to take as a class. You will learn gathering techniques, two different zipper installations, hood construction and much more.
There are so many great variations for this coat. You can have the hood or not, put elastic in the waist or not, make it in a wide range of fabrics and choose fun matching or contrasting zippers. In my latest one, I lined my hood with some precious Liberty of London lawn weight that I picked up in NYC this summer. It was the perfect use for it – a little splash of the lovely Liberty!
Erica is offering the session one more time in December before taking off for maternity leave. So now is your chance to learn this fantastic pattern. I dare you to only make one!
