Laura Jacket

A gorgeous asymmetrical jacket like this one is a staple for every woman’s wardrobe. It can be combined with so many different outfits – pair it with jeans for a casual ‘oh, I just threw this on earlier’ look, or wear it over a high-neck dress to channel office chic style. Working with boiled wool means that there’s no need to hem, so you can hone in on other techniques such as edgestitching – this really is a treat to wear and make!

Essentials
  1. Boiled wool, 1.6m (150cm)
  1. Bias binding, 2.5cm wide
Sizes
  1. 8-20
Dimensions List
  1. Front:cut one pair, then cut along the marked line for the left-hand side
  2. Back: cut one on the fold
  3. Sleeve: cut one pair
  4. 1.5cm seam allowance used throughout unless otherwise stated.

    1 Download and print the pattern at sewmag.co.uk, then cut according to the cutting guide. Lay the front jacket pieces on top of one another, wrong sides facing, and match the centre back collar. Stitch the seams together, then press the seam allowance open.

    2 Position the back onto the front piece, right sides facing, and match the shoulder seams. Clip up to the dot marked on the front piece to release the neckline – this will enable the back and collar neck to match. Pin across the shoulders and neckline, matching the centre back neckline to the back collar seam. Stitch the seam together in a continuous line.

    3 Open and press the seam allowance across the back neck. Pin bias binding over the seam allowance, then turn in both ends and edgestitch in place. Match the side seams from the front and back side edges together, stitch, then press the seams open.

    4 Adjust the stitch length to five, then use gathering stitch around the sleeve heads, starting from the front notch and finishing at the back notches. Match, pin and sew the underarm sleeve seams together, right sides facing, then press the seams open. Lightly pull the gathering threads, then place the sleeves, matching the notches, into the armholes. Pin and stitch in place.

    5 Make three buttonholes as marked on the front pattern piece. Hand-stitch the buttons to the adjacent places on the left-hand side of the jacket.
