Coco Jacket Pattern – Sew Over It
Inspired by the classic Chanel boucle tweed jacket, Coco is stylish, flattering, ever-wearable and guaranteed to never go out of style. Perfect for in-between seasons, the Coco Jacket will add that little bit of chic elegance to your look.
A simple cropped jacket, it features a pretty round neck, princess seams, two-piece sleeve, full lining and optional braiding. That quintessential shape, Coco is a wardrobe staple, guaranteed to go with any outfit. Pairing beautifully with a high-waist, we love her over the Betty Dress for a beautiful wedding guest outfit. Or channel your inner Jackie O and sew an Ultimate Pencil Skirt in the same fabric to make a sassy co-ord suit.
With clean style lines, Coco is the perfect blank canvas. Make a statement with a bold, bright fabric, or keep it classic with an exquisite plain cloth. Have fun with textures for a truly luxurious jacket the real Coco would be proud of.
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.
