    Method: This zero waste pattern is a downloadable PDF Instruction booklet. It is designed to be drawn directly onto your fabric by using small templates which you can make yourself, or print easily on a home printer. You draw your garment pieces directly onto your fabric by following the step by step instructions. Pieces are broken up into simple blocks which can be modified easily to change lengths, add/remove different design elements and accommodate changing fabric widths.

    Description: This is an oversized workwear style jacket made using Zero Waste Pattern Cutting. It has a collar and a dropped shoulder. Comes with 2 pocket options. Jacket has side splits, front button closure, shoulder darts on front and back shoulders for shaping and back gathers on the sleeve hem with a roll up cuff.

    PDF Pattern/Instruction Booklet: Includes measurements in both metric (centimetres) and US imperial (inches). Booklet/Templates are printable on both A4 or US Letter Paper size. You can check the 'Table of Contents' in the PDF booklet to see which page numbers include Templates for printing.

    Fabric recommendations: Choose something in a woven fabric. For a Spring/Summer version choose a mid-heavy weight linen or cotton. For a winter version this works well in a light to mid weight wool coating. Is also lovely in a cotton corduroy.
