Pattern Review: Sewn – 1002 Upline Jacket

Style Tip: For added impact, the pattern designer loves to topstitch this jacket with up to four rows edging the zipper.

Sewn Upline Jacket 1002

This out-of-the-ordinary jacket is the perfect go-everywhere piece. It includes a wide stand-away collar, raglan sleeves, a choice of three lengths, zipped or buttoned front closure, inseam pockets, self-fabric back belt, and lots of topstitching to accentuate the princess seams, neckline, front placket, and sleeve hem. The 12 pages of instructions are informative and easy to understand. The notion list calls for seven buttons for the long view, five for the front and two for the belt. Our tester found the actual buttonhole markings on the front to be six, requiring a total of eight buttons. Ideal fabrics are corduroy, medium-weight wool, and heavyweight cottons.

(Sized XXS-XL [0-20] for busts 28-42.5 in. and hips 29-44 in.)

Style Tip: For added impact, the pattern designer loves to topstitch this jacket with up to four rows edging the zipper.
