The Coco Jacket sewing pattern is designed for intermediate dressmakers. Although it’s not too difficult in terms of construction, we recommend you have a few other dressmaking projects under your belt before tackling Coco, but if you’ve never made a jacket before, it’s a great pattern to start with.
For the Coco Jacket we recommend a medium to heavyweight wool fabric, such as tweed, boucle, boiled wool or melton. For a lighter jacket, you could also try a jacquard, linen or viscose linen blend. If you are a beginner we recommend avoiding fabrics with a very loose weave (such as boucle) as these fray easily and can make your sewing more tricky.
The Coco Jacket is fully-lined, so you will also need lining fabric. We recommend using something with a silky finish so you can get the jacket on and off easily, such as satin, acetate, or even silk charmeuse for all-out luxury.
The Coco Jacket sewing pattern is available in sizes 8-20. See the size chart for details on measurements and fabric requirements.
Like all Sew Over It patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.
