New pattern: the Julien chore jacket
If you like chore jackets, you'll love Julien!
I’m so excited to announce that the Julien jacket is finally here! The second Ready to sew pattern available in a plus size range and with spanish instructions!
Julien is part of my workwear collection along with the boilersuit Jean-Paul, the Jean-Paul expansion pack and the fisherman smock James. I love sturdy clothes with a masculine vibe and the collection certainly could"t be called workwear without a chore jacket. I've been really inspired by french vintage workwear jackets lately and the one my friend Julien owns particularly caught my eye;-)
I’ve gathered some images from around the internet to inspire your own Julien jacket.
Inspired by classic workwear, each seam of this jacket is topstitched or enclosed to hold up for a lifetime. This unlined button-up chore jacket features one front chest pocket, two front hand pockets, buttoned cuffs and a real knack for getting things done. Julien’s boxy fit is perfect for layering.
The Julien jacket is rated as "intermediate". It has a very simple approach used to achieve ordinarily quite challenging techniques such as creating the back pleat, button placket and sleeve openings. The most challenging part is the collar. The instructions are ; as usual ; very detailed and you can get some help here by following the sew along for the collar! It is a great pattern for an advanced beginner trying to stretch her skills. If you need to make alteration to the pattern to fit your measurements (Lengthening or shortening, grading between sizes, enlarging sleeve, making a full bust adjustement) you can follow this tutorial from the blog.
SUGGESTED FABRICS AND NOTIONS
8 to 14 oz. per square yard (227 to 360 GSM) cotton canvas, cotton denim, moleskin, linen, corduroy... if you choose 12 to 14 ounce fabric, be sure to check that your sewing machine can handle the heavier weight first.
Well, that’s all I can think of for now. I’ve been wearing my Julien jacket a few times and it doesn’t hurt that all my friends want one!
