Buy the Causeway Bomber Jacket sewing pattern from Itch to Stitch. The Causeway can be made from a variety of fabrics, from lightweight nylon to mid-weight embroidered cotton, so you can select one that matches your personal style. The bomber is traditionally a short jacket with a ribbed collar, waistband and cuffs. The Causeway adds a touch of femininity with front princess seams that also give you a great fit in the bust. The optional invisibly zipped pockets are embedded in the princess seams for a streamlined look. It has slightly dropped shoulders with long two-piece sleeves and a centre front exposed zipper. And you have the option to make the jacket reversible!

Suggested fabrics:

Fabric A: This is for the primary side of the jacket. The ideal fabric is lightweight to medium weight woven fabric without stretch. Nylon, cotton, rayon twill, crepe are good choices. Lightweight to medium weight woven fabric with a little stretch or a stable knit fabric such as a lightweight fleece is also acceptable but it will result in a more relaxed garment.

Fabric B: This is for the reverse side of the jacket. You can use similar fabric as Fabric A. If you choose to not make the jacket reversible, Fabric B should be a lining fabric such as Bemberg lining, lawn, batiste, lightweight woven fabric, silk, satin or other polyester lining.

Fabric C (ribbing): Pre-made ribbing cuff can be used although it must be at least 7" (18 cm) in length and you will have to piece the cuffs together to accommodate the width. A stable interlock fabric with good recovery is also acceptable.

Lining: This lining fabric is used for the pocket bags. Use a lightweight woven fabric. Bemberg lining, lawn, batiste or other polyester lining are good choices.

Fabric requirements: 

Fabric A: 54″ (135 cm) wide fabric: 1 3/8 - 2 1/8 yd (130 - 190 cm).

Fabric B: 54″ (135 cm) wide fabric: 1 3/8 - 2 1/8 yd (130 - 190 cm).

Fabric C (ribbing): 27" (68 cm) wide fabric: 7/8 - 1 3/8 yd (70 - 130 cm).

Pocket lining (per each set of pockets): 54″ (135 cm) wide fabric: 3/8 yd (30 cm).

Sizing: US 00 – 40 (approx. UK 6/8 – 34/36). Please check the designer's size chart and finished garment measurements.

Sizes 00-20 have A, B, C, D and DD cups. Sizes 22-40 have B, C, D and DD cups.

A note from the designer about bust cup options: To determine your cup size, subtract the circumference of your over bust from the circumference of the fullest part of your bust. If the rounded difference is 1″ (2.5 cm), use A cup; 2″ (5 cm), use B cup; 3″ (7.5 cm), use C cup; 4″ (10 cm), use D cup; 5″ (12.5 cm), use DD cup.

Notions: Lightweight woven fusible interfacing; open-end jacket zipper (use a reversible zipper if you choose to make your jacket reversible, otherwise use a regular single-sided one); one set of zipper top stops for the open-end jacket zipper (optional); two 7" (18 cm) or longer invisible zippers for each set of pockets you decide to make; 3/8" or 1/2" (1 cm or 1.25 cm)-wide straight fusible stay tape (or cut your own using lightweight woven fusible interfacing on the straight grain), 26" (66 cm) for each set of pockets you choose to make and 18" (46 cm) for the shoulders.

PDF pattern includes: Step-by-step illustrated instructions; US letter/A4 print-at-home pattern (64 pages for sizes 00-20, 71 pages for sizes 16-40, but you only need to print the pages for your size and bust cup); A0 copy shop pattern (4 sheets for sizes 00-20, 6 sheets for sizes 16-40, but you only need to print the sheets for your size and bust cup) // Layers: Yes // Projector file: No.

Wonderful!, relevant sizing and I love the result :)

I absolutely loved the pattern and the result I achieved! I decided to do the reversible jacket, one side is this flashy blue African waxed print fabric, and the other side is plain black faux suede.

This is the sizes I chose in case that helps you making yours: I added padding inside the jacket to make it warmer and for that reason I went a size above what I was aiming for (so went for 8 in the end, for all the way, B cup, 8 bust and 8 waist). I could have gone size 6 for waist as its a tiny bit loose. The overall fit is relaxed. I opted to extend the body, which wasn't very necessary as its long enough I think, and I also extended the length of the sleeves, which I definitely needed as I have quite long arms! I only had one faux pas: to swap right arms and left arms when sewing them on the jacket! I wasn't sure how to match the seams and finally realised the very first drawing of the jacket on page 2 gave me the confirmation I needed to correctly place the arms. The instructions are correct, I simply needed to see the overall design to realise what goes where.

Each step were explained wonderfully. The drawings helped and the colours code and abbreviations were extremely useful. I would say it was a 'careful' way of making the jacket especially with all the "basting" steps.

This was the first jacket I ever sewn (I usually make object, bags etc but not so much clothes) and I am more confident of what I can do in the future.  For reference it took about about 45 hours to make and I enjoyed it all the way. I will be trying something new soon.
