Looks great – Collar is an Enigma!

A review of Style Arc Logan Shacket

Reviewed by Gillian Airey on 15th January, 2023

Loved making this shacket not least because I have learnt a new word ‘shacket’! However, the collar simply did not fit despite following the seam allowances religiously. I checked on Style Arc’s own website and found that the collar had caused some consternation for other sewists. The collar as per the pattern pieces ended up being 14cm short for the jacket body, there aren’t even enough seam allowances to get to 14cm! I can only think that the collar as printed on the pattern is for the smaller size range and has been transposed onto the larger size range not scaled up to the larger sizes. Thankfully I felt able to make the amends and even more thankfully had spare fabric to make a whole new collar.
