This Jacket was designed as a fitted garment so it's best to wear light weight clothing
underneath. If you'll be wearing heavier layers, you'll want to make the next larger size.

To figure out how much yardage you'll need for your Jacket, first check the Finished Length Chart below to determine your Jacket length.

Next use the Body Measurement Chart to determine your size. Take a measuring tape and measure around the fullest part of your bust, waist and hip. Your bust measurement will dictate your size. If your measurements fall between sizes, choose the larger of the two.

Materials List (for all styles & sizes)

The yardage given is for a one-way design. Allow extra yardage for matching or centering a design on your fabric.




FINISHED LENGTH CHART: measurements are from the base of your neck to the hem of your choice.
