Introducing the 9th pattern from Sewaholic Patterns! The Cordova Jacket. A modern zip-front jacket with peplum seaming
It's a fitted, lined jacket with a flattering peplum detail and a zip front closure. This jacket bridges the gap between dressy and casual depending on the fabric selection. Princess seams make it easy to customize the fit, and the collarless neckline means it's perfect to wear with cosy scarves in the winter.
Sewaholic have created this pattern to fill the void between casual and formal jackets. They have the Minoru Jacket for a sporty look, now we have the Cordova Jacket for work, a dressy jacket that’s not a blazer. The double peplum creates an instant hourglass silhouette.
This jacket would be great in all kinds of different fabrics! Wools, textured tweeds, corduroy or velveteen are perfect choices for fall. For a light spring jacket, look for a cotton twill, denim or linen.
RECOMMENDED FABRICS: Medium weight woven fabrics such as cotton blends, gabardine, linen, crepe and wool blends. Lightweight brocade and tweeds also suitable. For lining: lining fabrics. Allow extra fabric to match plaids, stripes or one-way designs.
NOTIONS:Thread, 1 metre of fusible interfacing, 50cm (20") separating zipper (sizes 0-8), 53cm (21") separating zipper (sizes 10-16).
