This ensemble pattern includes four garments. View A is a hip-length unlined jacket with rolled collar, full-length sleeves, and a self-fabric belt. View B is a duster-style unlined coat with a rolled collar, draped front, and bracelet-length sleeves with rolled cuffs. View C is a vest in the same silhouette as view B. View D is a pair of wide-legged pants with side seam pockets and a faced waistline with elastic in the back. Optional details include chest shields and buttoned sleeve tabs for holding up the rolled sleeves. Our tester found the illustrations for sewing the curved jacket hem to be helpful and the process resulted in neat stitching. This design works well in chambray, linen, or midweight twill.
(Sized Misses’ XS-XXL [4–26] for busts 29.5–48 in. and hips 31.5–50 in.)
