Buy the Viva Tie Jacket sewing pattern from Vanessa Hansen. The Viva Tie Jacket is incredibly versatile. Make it in a floppy cotton/viscose mix for a loose and comfy cardi; in a navy or green cotton twill for a utilitarian light jacket to wear on top of dungarees; or choose a luxury jacquard for a dressed up occasion. You can try different fabrics and add your own personal touches.

View A is the jacket version, featuring a chest pocket and hip pockets. The jacket is closed with side ties.

View B is the shirt version, which is a little shorter. It has a chest pocket and elasticated sleeve cuffs and is closed using a belt.
