Suggested fabrics: Mid- to heavy weight woven fabrics are best suited for this pattern, such as canvas, thick denim, corduroy, twill, wool, jacquard. For thicker fabrics like wool or heavy weight jacquard, the designer recommends sewing the boxy sleeve option of View B, as it is very hard to sew the sleeve placket and cuff of View A with thicker fabrics.

Fabric requirements: If you work with patterned fabric, you might need more fabric to pattern match.

140 cm (55″) wide fabric: Cropped version (View A), 180 - 230 cm (71" - 91") // Long version (View B), 200 - 260 cm (79" - 103").

Sizing: A – J (approx. UK 8 – 28, based on our standardised size chart). Please also check the designer’s size chart and finished garment measurements.

This pattern was drafted for a height of 160 – 170 cm. If you are shorter or taller than this, you might consider shortening or lengthening the pattern.

Notions: 75 cm (30") of interfacing at least 100 cm (40") wide; four (View A) or five (View B) 20 mm (3/4") buttons; two 12 mm (1/2") buttons for View A cuffs.

PDF pattern includes: Step-by-step illustrated instructions; A4/US letter print-at-home pattern (43 pages); A0 copy shop pattern (3 sheets) // Layers: Yes // Projector file: No.

2nd version of this great pattern

I’ve just completed a spring/autumn version of the Jameela jacket in a 12 oz twill from Merchant and Mills.  For this version I sized down, added about 1.5cm to the sleeve length and removed 3.5cm from the length of the jacket. I added bias binding to the side seams and used the same scrap fabric for the pocket linings and inside yoke. I also added top stitching, which was very tricky in places due to the thickness of the layers of fabric - my 50 year old machine was groaning! I thoroughly recommend this pattern. The instructions are very clear and thorough and the end result is very rewarding. It’s also a very enjoyable sew.

Jameela Jacket

I really enjoyed making this jacket from a vintage blanket bought in a charity shop. I found the pattern very easy to follow, with clear instructions and diagrams. It all came together very quickly and easily. I didn’t use as much interfacing as recommended as I wanted a soft and cosy feel so I could also wear the jacket indoors on really cold days!

Versatile jacket

I've recently made the short version of this jacket, view A. I had a few head scratching moments when the instructions could have been clearer but they haven't put me off making another version. I made this one in a Robert Kaufman linen blend in flax, an oatmeal colour. As the seams are only 1cm I didn't sew the side seams as French seams as instructed, instead I overlocked all the seams. Some of the instructions are lacking in detail so I found these somewhat confusing. Specifically; the pockets, the yoke (using the burrito method which I've used previously), and the front placket. The diagrams weren't any help either. Nevertheless I managed to work them out and next time I'll know what I'm doing. Overall I really like this jacket as it has details that make it very different from the classic blazer. I'm going to make some trousers from the same fabric which effectively will make it a trouser suit but I will also be able to wear them as separates. I would recommend this pattern for an advanced or possibly an intermediate sewist. It took me 5 days to make, including cutting out, but I wasn't sewing it all day and I made a toile first as so many patterns need adjustments these days plus I had to trace it first as it's a pdf. Next time I would expect it to take 2-3 days, not 1-2 days as the designer suggests.
