Garment Making Patterns: The Ilford Jacket by Friday Pattern Co. - Printed Pattern
Skill Level: Confident Beginner
Designed for versatility, the Ilford Jacket’s modular design makes for a simple yet impactful pattern. A “choose your own adventure” type of pattern, it can be customized a million different ways to incorporate your own design sense into the project! The pattern features two different lengths and two types of drop-shoulder sleeve: a placketed sleeve with cuff, and an easy-to-sew boxy sleeve for a more relaxed vibe. You can wear the Ilford as a jacket or shirt, depending on the fabric you use. There’s also a bunch of pocket templates that you can mix and match! When you add these awesome features up, the possibilities are endless. This fun, skill-building pattern is intended for everyone; it’s a garment that all genders will want to make and wear again and again!
Designed for a wide variety of woven fabrics, Ilford’s design lines are simple enough that you have room to experiment with fabrics you may not have worked with before! For a boxier look, go for a lightweight canvas, linen, denim, or corduroy, but it also looks amazing in a drapey woven. When sewn up in a cozy flannel, it is the perfect fall layering piece!
