This Kochi from Papercut Patterns is sewn up in delicious mustard linen from The Fabric Store.
I drastically increased the size of this everywhere because I wanted something wearable, cozy and that doubled as a rug for grass protection.
There’s not much more to be said that I haven’t already said about this pattern. It’s not in my size, so I never got the fit I was after.
Size Details: Size Details: I sewed the XL which is drafted for a 46.5″ hip. I made significant pattern adjustments and am wearing it here with a 47″ bust and 54″ hip.
You did a fantastic job there, the asymmetrical front is very becoming. Your jacket looks way better than the original! If you are looking for japanese patterns that will fit you well I warmly recommend the book “Make your own japanese clothes” by John Marshall. Each pattern is drawn from your measurements. I really appreciate your websit/blog.
Thanks very much for the tip! I have a jacket pattern that I really love which will be released soon from an Australian pattern designer (I tested the pattern), so keep an eye out for that!
