Fabric Consumption: For the Size F, which I made, the instructions suggest 2.7m of 150cm wide fabric. I squeezed this out of 2.5m of 150cm wide linen from The Fabric Store- I bought it in the Christchurch store, so I’m not sure which of their shades it is.
Size: I made a Size F, but lengthened the sleeves by 3″. Size F is our sample-size, but my 48″ bust would generally mean that I’d make a Size E for our tops. Next time, I’ll make a Size E and won’t reduce the length of the sleeves.
The pockets on this are built in to the front, which we also replicated on the back of the jacket. This means that the jacket is perfect for scrap-busting and colour-blocking. Leila made a great denim version with lots of the leftovers from her jeans making.
My scrap-bins are telling me that I could absolutely make a whole jacket from scraps from previous projects, so we’ll see what’s up next.
