If you have basic sewing skills with a few simple projects under your belt, but want to build your confidence and start making garments, this is the class for you! Have fun making this Wiksten Jacket Pattern (Japanese-inspired jacket.) This pattern has been disconitnued, but it is still available in the Making Magazine #4. With large pockets and a fold-over collar, this oversized jacket is functional, comfortable, and stylish.  Fully lined and reversible (but with pocket on only one side), it looks more complicated to make than it actually is. The design includes three different lengths to choose from– short (hip length), mid (below-hip length), and long (thigh length).

Sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL.  Fits US Women’s sizes 00-18. The oversized nature of this garment makes it likely to fit sizes larger than shown on the size chart.

-for Main fabric: medium weight woven fabric with good drape, such as textured cotton, chambray, linen, soft denim, cotton/linen blend, twill, and wool
-for Lining fabric: light to medium weight woven fabric with good drape, such as textured cotton, chambray, linen, cotton/linen blend, and silk

The instructor is Janet Cass, a former hand weaver and graphic designer turned quilter in the past 6 years.  She is an award winning quilter, has shown her quilts at the Cocheco Quilt Show and MQX.  Recently she has turned her sewing and quilting focus to quilted vests, jackets and wall hangings.
