My quilted Pekka jacket
Today, I'd like to share with you my quilted Pekka jacket. I had this pattern + fabric match in mind since I started drafting the pattern. Depending on the fabric and view, the Pekka jacket can look very different.
Due to it’s simplicity and oversized nature it was perfect for the quilting that I was planning. The fabric is from Merchant & Mills. This layered cotton has a jacquard weave that gives it a quilted look and feel. The reverse is a gauzy cotton, there is no batting in the middle of this cloth, the inside is made up of a series of thicker yarns which gives it the quilted feel. The top is a fine cotton.I didn't used the shell fabric to line the pockets as it would have been too bulky. The lining is made of a super soft organic coton from Siebenblau.I'm wearing the Patsy overalls under the jacket. It's a match made in heaven in terms of comfort!
