Pattern Review: Dana Marie Design Company – Moto Me 1050

Sewing Tip: Since underarm sleeve seams and princess seams do not easily align, match only the front underarm seams when attaching sleeves.

Dana Marie Design Company: Moto Me 1050

This semifitted, unlined motorcycle jacket is uncomplicated to make and can be altered easily through the front and back princess seams, front darts, side seams, and center-back seam. The side-front zipper opening is trendy, while the button or frog closure option creates a one-of-a-kind jacket. This pattern was derived from, and includes pieces from, Dana Marie’s Sweet Little Jacket 1042 pattern, but has new front, collar, and inseam pocket pieces. Our tester noticed there was no grainline on the new front or pocket pattern pieces. Therefore, use the center-front line as the front piece grainline, and draw your own grainline on the pocket piece. Make this pattern in real or faux leather, Ultrasuede, wool bouclé, silk brocade, or denim.

(Sized XS-5XL [6-40] for busts 30-62 in.)

Sewing Tip: Since underarm sleeve seams and princess seams do not easily align, match only the front underarm seams when attaching sleeves.
