Simple Waterfall Jacket

Garments
fb-big twitter-big email-big pin-big

This pretty waterfall jacket by Julia Claridge is made from a faux suede that is light enough for warm days whilst still keeping out any unexpected chills! With no buttonholes or fastenings, this garment is simple in design and only requires you to neaten it at the edges with an overlock or zigzag stitch. Just remember to lay the pattern pieces out before you cut them so that the nap runs the same way on your finished garment.

Dimensions List
  1. Front: cut one pair

1

    Cut out all the pieces according to the cutting guide. Neaten the centre-front, upper-front and sides. With right sides together, sew the front and back at the shoulders. The back shoulder seam is longer than the front – this extra length should be at the neck edge.

2

    With right sides together, attach the back neck facing to the back neck edge, carefully stitching to the edge of the extended shoulder seam without catching the front panels. Clip the neck edge, understitch and neaten the inner edge of the facing. Turn the facing back so that the shoulder edges of the facing match with the shoulder seam. Stitch in place, following the shoulder seam line.

3

    With right sides together, join the underarm seams of the sleeves. Neaten the raw edges. Stitch two rows of gathering stitches around the sleeve head. Matching seams and notches, ease the sleeve to fit the armhole. With right sides together, stitch in place, then neaten the raw edges. Neaten the cuff edges and lower hem, then turn a 2.5cm hem on each one and stitch.
