Pattern Review: Butterick 6641 Slim-Fitting Jacket

Threads #205, Oct./Nov. 2019

Butterick 6641

This fully lined, hip-length, slim-fitting jacket by Lisette has a funnel collar and notched front neckline, front shoulder yoke, front waist darts, front and back princess seams, welt pockets with flaps, one-button closure, two-piece sleeves with a button vent, back neck darts, and a center-back seam ending in a vent. Separate pattern pieces are included for bust cup sizes A/B, C, and D. Add to the sleeves if you plan to wear a garment with sleeves under it. Our tester recommends reinforcing the notch in the lapel, especially if you use a fashion fabric that frays She says she found the directions for the pocket and neckline construction to be comprehensive and easy to understand. For a casual jacket, use wool or linen and for a dressier version, opt for dupioni.

(Sized Misses’ 6–22 [A-D cups] for busts 30.5-44 in.)

STYLE TIP: In a heavy or loosely woven fabric, skip the notches in the front neckline for a sleek finish.
