I lusted after this pattern for ages and then bought it on whim and left it to linger in my pattern stash until finally it made i’s way into the sewing pile, and I’m so glad it did. This is the second time I’ve made a Papercut patterns ( I’ve also made a pneuma tank …as yet unblogged!!) and their sizing and fit works very well for me.
I chose to make the shorter version and I did go to the trouble of making a muslin (cutting a M) and then after trying to make numerous alterations, my wise partner (Mr BB) suggested I just go down a size….uh duh, and of course a S fit just right!!
I have the paper version of the pattern and I love the aesthetic that goes into all aspects, even the pattern sleeve. The instructions are straight forward and well explained, illustrations help so that the jacket came together very simply, overall a really enjoyable make. The fabric is a navy wool blend, bought from The man outside Sainsburys (Walthamstow Market) and the lining is long a go purchase from ebay, a decent match I think.
I haven’t actually worn this much since I made it as the weather turned a little cold, but looking forward to breaking it out come the spring…….
If you need any more inspiration to make this pattern search ti on integral…there are literally tons of wonderful versions
