Buy the 251 Unisex Varsity Jacket sewing pattern from Folkwear. This classic 1950s sport jacket was coveted by all fashion-conscious Americans. The traditional model featured a wool body with leather sleeves, but it looks amazing in sandwashed silk, corduroy, or print cotton. The pattern includes instructions for optional hand-knitted ribbing for cuffs, collar, and waistband. This is a great jacket that is still right on trend!
