This great!  Thanks for sharing.  I'm downloading it now.  I have a question though.  Are the sleeves draping like that because of the fabric, or are the sewn to keep that gather at the top of the sleeve.  I really like how it looks, but I see myself getting very sick of pushing the sleeves up, constantly, over my already short arms.

Looks great!  I'd like to see it with a person inside.  Very nice work!

For people who are confused, I think it's best to think of the front part as a sort of collar/lapel.  The middle skinny part is the neckline/collar, and the two wide ends are at the bottom.  Think 3-dimensionally.  I found it easiest to make a little doll-sized version first, which really helped me to see how it goes together.  In my opinion, the conceptual leap involved is exactly what makes this pattern so beautiful.

I did similar thing, too!
Instead of making small version, I usualy use clear tape and pattern itself.
(problem is ... all my patterns got a lot of wrinkles...^^)

Here's a photo of mine. I started by printing the 2 pieces of pattern to fit on 2 sheets of A4, and made a miniature 'doll sized' jacket, to work out how the pieces went together. I then made a life-sized version out of calico, to try out the fit.

Finally, I made up the real one. I bought this winter-weight fabric on sale (it's end of Winter down here in New Zealand) for $6 a metre. I bought 4 metres. There's a lot left over, but I needed 4 metres for the length.

I'm pleased with how it came out. I didn't put the magnetic snap in, I'm just going to wear it with a pin. I wore it to the office today with a business shirt, and it looked awesome! I think I'll make one out of grey sweatshirt knit next.

This is a lovely pattern!!!
Thank you xmaskid - the instructions are really helpful.

Girlgeeknz, you jacket looks breathtaking!!
So you needed 4 meters of fabric for the length... what did the piece that you actually used measure?
(I rekon you roughly need a long rectangle, right?)
Thanx in advance!

I bought 175cm of fabric and took it to my seamstress  (I really liked the wooly fabric and the Yamamoto pattern - I didnt want to mess anything up on my moody sewing machine Embarrassed). Ill have pics of it on Friday. I thought that 175cm would be enough, because when I reach my arms out, they should be about 175cm (because Im 175.5cm tall) but I am still worried because store bought jackets always have too short sleeves (especially Zara). So I hope mine turned out well, because I really like girlgeeknz and xmaskids jackets! Cheesy

I might be wrong, but I think the pattern was about 163cm. I am just guessing because i dont have the pattern at hand right now.

I'm really tall - do you think it would be easy to adjust the pattern so it's long enough at the waist and sleeves?  I've never made any clothes before, but this doesn't look too complicated and it's GORGEOUS - just my style.
thanks!,

Hi,

I measured my pattern pieces, and at the widest point they were 75cm. The length of each piece was about 185cm. I didn't measure it accurately, but that's about right. It should be easy enough to adjust, it's not complex.
