Make a great jacket from simple rectangles. Use a collection of soft and drapey silk prints to overlay onto wool crepe and serge in place, giving this jacket a pieced look without the complication of doing the math.


— 2 yd wool crepe for the base garment
— Nine or more lengths of silk prints or kimono pieces, each 14" wide and ranging from 3" to 22" long for the fabric overlays
— One large, decorative button, 1½"


Excluding sleeves—
Front: 35-1/2" wide × 27" long
Back: 35-1/2" wide × 29-1/2" long

To make the garment smaller or larger, split the front and back pattern pieces vertically from the shoulder to the hem. Overlap to make smaller or spread to make larger.

Love this design Review by Hattye

I think it's an ingenious way to use fabrics. I'm in the process of making the coat out of silk base fabric with solid and printed cotton and polyester fabrics. Since a rear view wasn't given, I didn't know if the back had pieced sections. I'm pleased so far how everything is going. Love using rectangle pieces of fabric for construction of garments.
