Sewing The Ilford Jacket

The ultimate everyday jacket.

This fab pattern by the Friday Pattern Company is a super versatile, unisex jacket available to make in two lengths. We opted to sew the standard length which has a similar fit to a denim jacket in one of our stunning linen curtain fabrics. The pattern is suitable for confident beginners and can be worn as a shirt or a jacket depending on your choice of fabric. Heavy fabrics like denim, twill, and canvas will make a structured jacket. Softer fabrics like linen, midweight corduroy, and light wool will make a more shacket-style garment and flannel, cotton/linen blends, and chambray will make a lighter, overshirt type of Ilford.
