  Jacket Add-On Pattern 1945A
Multi-sized pattern includes sizes 8-18 

This pattern is an add-on for the basic jacket pattern 1945. It includes patch and welt pocket styles, and a new front, collar, and facings to create this style. You must have pattern 1945 to complete this garment.

I've always heard how you love to get a perfect fitting jacket, but would like to then change the neckline or pockets or something.... So, this is my answer. Once you have jacket 1945 fitting well, then you've got this winner with a new front, collar, facings and two different pocket styles. In a flat fabric with the welt pocket this will look very Italian sophisticated, and in a nubby or boucle fabric with the patch pockets, this will look very French. Get the picture? If not, the SewImagination Workbook: Jackets will give you several more ways of transforming this pattern including simple on seam pockets when you don't want any pocket displayed at all, and other collar and neckline variations. This pattern is good for plaids or bold patterns with a single front panel shaped with long darts.


"I highly recommend this pattern. This jacket is definitely the backbone to my wardrobe. It is extrememly comfortable. I love the slim fit on the body and sleeve. I feel the jacket is slimming and flattering because of the higher armholes and dart shaping in the body.Every time I wear it I get complements!"
