This half-lined jacket is a classic, with some structure but very easy to wear.  As our starting point, we will be using the Jasika blazer pattern from Closet Core Patterns, as they have excellent resources to help you fit the blazer. The link is below:



In this class, we will modify the Jasika blazer pattern, learning how to draft a shawl lapel, and how to draft all of the pieces to create the half-lined jacket that we will construct. Once we have all the pieces, we will begin constructing a half-lined jacket that includes, along with the shawl lapel, patch pockets, Hong Kong-bound seams, a front body canvas, center back vent, and classic set-in sleeves with shoulder pads and created sleeve heads.


Each week you will receive the zoom link to the class session, then the next day after class, you will receive the link for the zoom class recording along with the videos contained within.


When you finish this class, you will have a versatile, fun-to-wear shawl lapel jacket!
