Bomber-Style Jacket with Back Interest | 360-Degree View

Threads #213, Feb./March 2021

Stand out from the crowd in the Worthy Design Studio Iconic Bomber, a one-size design with interesting piecing details and a relaxed silhouette. You will also be supporting a worthy cause, as the designers send all net proceeds from the pattern’s sale to ARC Cancer Support. The bomber-style jacket design draws inspiration from Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, known for featuring dots in her works, and it features a large circular inset on the center back.

The jacket is fully lined, with dolman sleeves ending in wide bands that can be rolled back to expose the lining. It has a center-front zipper closure, bust darts, welt pockets, and an angled panel set into each sleeve above the cuff band. The jacket derives its bomber style from a standing collar and a gathered hem. The back has a belt channel along the hem. A separate belt piece fits through the channel and attaches to snaps along the front hem. The belt is adjustable according to the snap placement, to create a more or less gathered look along the back hem.

The pattern calls for a medium- to heavyweight woven fabric. For spring and summer, consider denim, linen, rayon, or cotton blends. Fall and winter versions could be in soft and drapey wool coating, bouclé, boiled wool, flannel, and tweed. The jacket’s piecing and inset provide opportunities to mix fabrics in an interesting way. Its design is one size, fitting up to approximately size 18 ladies’ or size 44 men’s.

This bomber-style jacket pattern was tested by Norma Bucko, Newtown, Connecticut

The sample was sewn in wool coating from MoodFabrics.com with silk lining from EmmaOneSock.com.
