Sasha Jacket

Stitching sequinned fabric can be challenging, but with a bit of patience and a sprinkle of determination, it is easily achievable! This jacket is certainly a one-of-a-kind make – the fabric we’ve chosen allows you to brush the sequins in opposite directions to reveal different colours: rock a block coloured jacket or give it a brush to transform the garment into a trendy two-tone piece!

  4. 1.5cm seam allowance used throughout unless otherwise stated.

    1 Download the pattern at sewmag.co.uk, print and follow the cutting guide. Fold the jacket front piece on top of the back, right sides facing. Match the shoulder edges, pin and stitch together, then open the seam allowance. Hand-sew a row of running stitches around the head of the sleeves, starting from the front notch and working towards the back notches.

    2 Match, pin and sew the underarm sleeves together, right sides facing, then open the seam allowance. Pull up the running threads, then place the sleeves, matching the notches, into the jacket armholes. Pair the side and underarm seams of the sleeves together, then pin and stitch in place.

    3 Double fold the mesh selvedge edge at the jacket base inside the garment and pin in place, then hand slip-stitch the mesh hem to secure. Repeat this process around the base of the sleeves. If you prefer, the sleeves and jacket base can be bound similar to the front edges.

    4 Press the bias binding in half, then slot it over the raw front and neck edges, ensuring you leave extra room at the base to turn in. Edgestitch the binding in place on the face of the jacket, being mindful that you don’t stretch the fabric. If you have a machine binding attachment, use this instead and don’t press the binding in half.
