NEW :: The Sydney Jacket Pattern

Sydney Jacket made up in boiled wool Jurgen Grigio (sold out)

Introducing our latest pattern – The Sydney Jacket. This oversized, draped design features a relaxed collar, side pockets and a back yoke that extends into cropped raglan sleeves. It’s a great layering piece as well as being the perfect snuggly cover-up for those chilly autumn/winter months.

Sydney Jacket worn with Merchant and Mills Top No. 64 (blogged here)
Sydney is a toasty all-rounder and looks equally great over jeans, dresses and skirts. All the edges are unfinished (no hemming! no binding!) which makes this a fantastically quick and simple sew.

Sydney Jacket in Primaluna Mulberry (washed in a hot wash before cutting) and worn with Remus Nero Esther Shorts

With this pattern, it’s REALLY important to remember that you must use a fabric that does not fray when cut.  I love the Primaluna (pictured above and below) but after picking and pulling at the cut edge, I realised it does in fact fray. To overcome this, I threw it in the machine (wash separately) and put it on a hot cycle. This further felted and softened it, fixing the fray and making it perfect for the Sydney Jacket pattern. Also, don’t forget to allow for 10% shrinkage if you decide to use this method.
