Quilted Jacket – Kwik Sew 4015 View A

Another catch up post.

Kwik Sew 4015 is one of those patterns with terrible photos, you really have to look at the line drawing and look past the front of the envelope and use your imagination.

Jackets have long sleeves. A: Stand-up collar, button closures and purchased bias binding.

Double sided quilted fabric is recommend for this jacket, but I couldn’t find any so I settled for 1 sided cotton quilted fabric from Minevra and added a lining from my stash

I originally cut out a large, but it was far too big, so I unpicked it and cut it down to a medium, I always seem to think I am bigger than I am.

I cut out the lining using the same pattern pieces as the jacket except for the collar which is constructed from two pieces of quilted fabric.

There are pockets in the side seams but they seamed to be too far back to be comfortable, so  I added patch pockets to the front and I am so glad I did.

I finished the jacket with  ready made bias binding, 15mm anorak press fasteners, instead of buttons    I treated myself to a Prym Vario pliers kit, although I had difficulty getting the fasteners into the fabric, I had to enlist my husband to use a bit of brut force.

I am really pleased with the fit and have worn it a lot with jeans, with skirts to work and here with an unblogged Molly dress.
