Fabric Consumption: For the Size F, which I made, the instructions suggest 2.7m of 150cm wide fabric. I squeezed this out of 2.5m of 150cm wide linen from The Fabric Store- I bought it in the Christchurch store, so I’m not sure which of their shades it is.//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js
Size: I made a Size F, but lengthened the sleeves by 3″. Size F is our sample-size, but my 48″ bust would generally mean that I’d make a Size E for our tops. Next time, I’ll make a Size E and won’t reduce the length of the sleeves.//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js
The pockets on this are built in to the front, which we also replicated on the back of the jacket. This means that the jacket is perfect for scrap-busting and colour-blocking. Leila made a great denim version with lots of the leftovers from her jeans making.
My scrap-bins are telling me that I could absolutely make a whole jacket from scraps from previous projects, so we’ll see what’s up next.
