My new favourite
A review of Grainline Studio Thayer Jacket
After a good deal of review research I choose size 8 in accordance with my bust measurement with no adjustments and just went for it. The size is perfect! It fits beautifully on the shoulders and as a spring weight jacket (mine is lined with a medium weight cotton) is perfect for a couple of layers underneath.
The jacket features a slight A-line shape with two roomy patch pockets and two in-seam yoke pockets. The front bodice princess seams and two piece sleeves ensure a great fit and form. That, along with lots of top stitch detailing gave this jacket a beautiful finish!
I took my time and it paid off.
One thing I did alter was the collar width at the front. I thought some of the collars on others looked a little mean for what I was going for so I took the collar piece from the Papercut Patterns Stacker Jacket to compare and adjusted the Thayer collar width at the front to match it. So I’ve really just added about 5/8” to the length of the collar point.
The instructions are fabulous for an intermediate sewer. There’s loads more detail on my blog https://lovelucie.org/2022/01/31/grainline-studio-thayer-jacket/
