Stylish! – Stacker Jacket

A review of Papercut Patterns Stacker Jacket

Reviewed by EHT on 31st January, 2022

This was my first lined jacket and it was a dream to make. Very clear instructions throughout. Several reviewers have pointed out the slightly short sleeves and although this is probably part of the boxy cropped design I would definitely add 2-3 cm next time.

I found the pattern to be true to size and made no fitting adjustments. It is meant to be boxy and generous, but a toile is always a good idea so you can get the best fit for your shape. I made my jacket with 12 oz twill and the weight of the fabric works well with the boxy design.

The instructions suggest horizontal button holes centred, but most jackets that I have seen use vertical button holes, which give a good and reliable alignment of the button into the centre of the button band.

An easy and stylish make!
