The Marion Jacket - PDF Pattern
The Marion jacket touches on 80’s cut and style; with bracelet length sleeves which are slightly batwing cut for a boxy shoulder, a tapered dropped waist that sits on your high hip and options for band or convertible roll collar.
The techniques used in this jacket are intermediate but with a little research on flat fell seams it is nothing an adventurous beginner couldn't handle. Overall the Marion is a great project for practising your flat fell seam techniques and with the multiple panels and style lines it offers you an opportunity to get creative with mixing textiles or using up your denim scraps.

you use regular thread.
