Blueprints for Sewing: Moderne 005

This thigh-length jacket was inspired by Art Moderne architecture from the 1930s and ’40s, which features horizontal and curved lines. It has a structural appearance, shaped front and back yokes with dropped shoulder seams, onepiece sleeves with elbow tucks, and a curved pocket design. There are two versions. Version 1 is a sporty, unlined style with rib knit collar and cuffs, piped seams, a straight hemline, and a lower back panel. Version 2 is lined, has a center-front placket for buttons or snaps, a notch on the back hemline of the three-quarter-length sleeves, open lower side seams with curved edges, and a one-piece back panel. The instructions and illustrations are correct and contain useful tips and suggestions. The pattern also includes two options for bust sizing. Size 1 is designed for cup sizes A and B, and size 2 for a C and D cup. Fabric choices include denim, brocade, fleece, and wool coating.

(Sized A/B-K/L for busts 32–50 in. and hips 35–53 in.)


— Tested by Gayle Moline, Manson, Iowa

Style Tip: Consider adding shoulder pads, as the dropped-shoulder seam may need support.
