Buy the 114 Chinese Jacket sewing pattern from Folkwear. This classically elegant jacket in three lengths, with a front or asymmetrical opening, is based on attire of the Qing Dynasty. It can be made in lavish silks or satin for formal occasions or cottons for everyday wear.

View A is an easy-to-sew unlined version. The typical side closing is formed by a shaped front overlap fastened by knotted button and loop closures (frogs) at the neck and under the right arm. The bell sleeves, neckline, overlap, and gracefully curved hem edge are all finished with inside facings. A band collar may be added to all views.

View B uses the same pattern pieces as View A. The jacket is lined, and the contrasting facings, piped with a narrow bias strip, are turned to the outside for a more decorative effect. Both Views A and B may be cut short or fingertip length.

In View C, the faced centre front opening is fastened with simple or more elaborate frogs. Faced side vents are added. View C is also lined, and may be cut short, fingertip, or mid-calf length.

Optional embellishment techniques include embroidery designs for traditional roundels, a couched embroidered butterfly to embellish the side vents of View C, hand-painting techniques, and frog closures.
