Pattern Review: Sew Chic LN1106 Phantom Jacket & Capris

Threads magazine - 163 - Oct./Nov. 2012

Style Tip: Play-up this outfit's retro vibe with a pair of Mary Jane shoes and a purchased belt to cinch in the waist.

This review was originally featured in Threads #163 (October/November 2012).

Sew Chic Pattern Company: The Phantom LN1106

This charming swing jacket is generously sized, has a convertible neckline, angled front princess seams, crossover center front, oversized patch pockets, and three-quarter-length sleeves with elbow darts and cuffs with a slit. Our tester liked the clean method used to sew the center-front panel to the side front, encasing all raw edges. The figure-flattering, high-waist, Capri-style pant includes a unique wide waistband, center-back zipper, and hemline slits. The pattern pieces fit together well, and all notches and match points line up. However, the directions for sewing the sleeve underarm seam were omitted. The unlined top complements sheer and opaque fabrics. The top is shown in cotton shirting and the pants in a lightweight wool suiting.

(Sized 2-18 for busts 32-45 in. and hips 35-48 in.)

Style Tip: Play-up this outfit’s retro vibe with a pair of Mary Jane shoes and a purchased belt to cinch in the waist.
