Zambeesi Jacket, womens PDF sewing pattern

Zambeesi Jacket, womens PDF sewing pattern


The Zambeesi Jacket is a womens PDF sewing pattern designed by Australian textile artist Pearl Red Moon.
The pattern sheet will print at home on 27x A4 pages or at a copy shop on 2x AO pages.

The Zambeesi Jacket is an unlined collarless jacket with round neck. The sleeves are wrist length. The body is hip length and swings wide with fullness. Patched from multiple pieces this jacket features decorative seam detailing and cotton tape on the hem. The detailed instructions describe how to turn the seams to the outside and topstitch them with a wide 3-step zigzag. The way the jacket is patched together from small pieces makes this a perfect project for sewists who have a large amount of small fabric pieces left over from other garments. Or for upcyclers wanting to cut up existing clothes to reuse.

The pattern has 4 sizes nested on the sheet - 
Small, Medium, Large, XLarge
Fits approximately:
EU and AU sizes 12, 14, 16, 18, 20
USA sizes 10, 12, 14, 16, 18
International sizes X, 1X, 2X, 3X
Bust size minimum - 101cm/40”
Bust size maximum - 134cm/53”

There are 17 pages of detailed assembly instructions with diagrams and including metric/imperial measurements.

Fabric requirements will vary. If the Jacket is made all in one fabric, depending on size and fabric width, from 1.7m(1.9yds) to 2.2m(2.4yds) of 115cm(44”) or 150cm(60”) will be needed.
