Buy the Portmanteau Shacket sewing pattern from French Navy. The Portmanteau pattern includes two styles, both featuring a relaxed boxy fit (perfect for layering), slightly dropped shoulders, a two-piece collar, and a separate button stand. Style A has angled hip pockets and a welted chest pocket, all neatly concealed within the semi-lined jacket front. Style B, inspired by the classic workwear jacket, is unlined, has three patch pockets, and offers a more utilitarian aesthetic. Both styles are suited to a variety of fabrics and fabric weights, making this pattern a super versatile piece that can be customised to any season.
