Pattern Review: New Look 6099 Misses’ Jackets

Threads magazine - 163 - Oct./Nov. 2012 Issue

Sewing Tip: Add your own style to this jacket: The lapel is your blank canvas for various embellishments; accent the cuffs with a contrasting fabric; or appliqué a zipper with a decorative tape edge at the center-front opening.

New Look 6099 – Workroom from Project Runway

This fitted, lined princess-seam jacket comes in two lengths: high hip with a curved hemline or hip length with a straight hemline. In the size 10, our tester found the pocket bag too big to fit between the princess seam and the front edge. The pattern tissue includes fitting instructions. Use this design to achieve different looks by simply changing a few details. For dressier occasions, select silk shantung or lightweight wool. For a sportier look, use cotton pique or denim. It is shown here in poplin and lace.

(Sized Misses’ 8-18 for busts 31.5-40 in.)

Sewing Tip: Add your own style to this jacket: The lapel is your blank canvas for various embellishments; accent the cuffs with a contrasting fabric; or appliqué a zipper with a decorative tape edge at the center-front opening.
