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.
