A review of Sienna Maker Jacket


Reviewed by Stitch And Press Ahn on 15th November, 2019

I’m here to tell you that Sienna can be made with Wool, you heard me…Wool! I made the short C version of Sienna with brushed wool and tweed. I’m not sure if wool would¬† work with the longer versions, but in my opinion heavy denim and coating wool are almost the same weight. So, why not? Give it a shot! I did and it paid off!

She was such a fun pattern to color block and she has so many interesting details! The vent with the buttons is such a fun detail, also all the topstitching is beautifully placed.  I have to say my favorite design detail has to be the lapel. You have an option to add a button on the lapel to close the jacket. Add a flip collar and you get a really cool sophisticated look!

If you have ever shied away from a lapel and notch collar this is the pattern to try. The instructions are spot on, and the markings on the pattern make sewing this collar a breeze. Do yourself a favor and don’t skip transferring all the markings. I suggest using tailor tacks on the collar pieces and coat pieces. The marking match beautifully and once you flip it all out you have a beautiful notch collar with a lapel !!

Sizing/Adjustments: I made size 8, and the fit is loose and comfortable yet flattering. The only adjustment I made is to shorten the sleeve by 2.5 cm.

Happy sewing! You can check out more photos on my instagram account.
