    Ilford jacket

    Posted by Emma on 28th Dec 2020

    I really like this jacket it’s one that every member of the family could wear. However I have only given it 3 stars as the sizing is very large even following their FGM. Also there is massive amount of fabric at the bottom of the back. But the great thing is they have sewers on their website who make the patterns and comments on it and hacks. So I discovered I wasn’t alone in this and was advised how to solve this problem

    Need some experience to make this!

    Disclaimer: I’m a beginner, still in the middle of making this for the first time but with an experienced maker on hand for help

    This pattern so far has been mostly great, although you need to be familiar with things like making a cuff placket or be prepared to turn to YouTube for help... sometimes the instructions are very unclear, and the pictures don’t help. I had to recut an entire sleeve :-s

    This has got to be the easiest jacket/shirt pattern I have followed! I haven't finished it yet but the instructions are so clear to follow that it would be hard to make a mistake. The instructions are clear and easy to follow and the pattern is easy to read. I ordered the pdf but then had a pattern printed and this is a good way of doing it instead of printing your own. I am encouraged to make more than one shirt and I will have a go at a jacket. Well worth the money.
