Get to know the Frankie Jacket
Sew a lined chore jacket that fits with the Frankie Jacket PDF pattern!
The Frankie Jacket is an on-trend chore jacket with a Sew Over It twist.
To create a boxy jacket that works for all shapes, we’ve included cut-away darts at the waist, to bring it in from the bust point. The 18-30 size band also includes a bust dart for extra shaping.
Choose between two styles: embrace the utilitarian look with Version 1, featuring a sharp collar, darted sleeve and angled patch pockets to keep your hands warm.
Version 2 of the Frankie Jacket is more feminine, with a touch of vintage given by the Peter Pan style collar, rounded patch pockets with flaps, and a fuller sleeve gathered into a narrow cuff.
Both versions of the collar are constructed with a partial collar stand to make it sit just right, and the sleeves are elevated by either the cuff or dart detail.
The jacket (and pockets!) are fully lined, for a beautiful finish and great potential to use a fun viscose or crepe print on the inside!
