The Ilford Jacket is a versatile style with a modular design, making it a simple yet impactful pattern that can be customised in countless ways. It's a "choose your own adventure" type of project that allows you to incorporate your design sense into the garment.
This jacket has drop shoulders and comes with two sleeve options: a placketed sleeve with a cuff and an easy-to-sew boxy sleeve for a more relaxed look. It also includes two lengths and various pocket templates that you can mix and match to your liking. The possibilities are truly endless! Depending on the fabric you use, you can wear the Ilford as a jacket or a shirt.
This is a fun and skill-building pattern that you'll want to make and wear over and over again. It's suitable for everyone and looks great on all genders!
For a boxier look, you can choose a lightweight canvas, linen, denim, or corduroy. Alternatively, it looks amazing in a drapey woven fabric. If you want to create a perfect fall layering piece, try sewing it up in flannel!
The design lines of this pattern are simple enough to allow you to experiment with fabrics you may not have worked with before. So, be creative and have fun!
