The Amelia Jacket is designed with intermediate stitchers and above in mind. Although it’s not too difficult in terms of construction, we recommend you have a few other dressmaking projects under your belt before tackling Amelia, but if you’ve never made a jacket before, it’s a great pattern to start with.
Sizing & Fabric Requirements
The Amelia Jacket sewing pattern is available in sizes 8-20. See the size chart for details on measurements and fabric requirements. See the chart for details on fabric requirements. Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.
The Amelia Jacket is perfect for medium weight fabrics such as cotton twill, coating wools, corduroy, boucle, crepe or melton wool. For the lining, we recommend fabrics such as acetate, polyester or viscose. You will also need 50cm of interfacing (lightweight or tailoring interfacing dependent on your fabric), 5cm wide elastic and a metal open-ended zip. We recommend getting a 22 inch zip and shortening it, especially if you plan to make any pattern adjustments. If you wish, you can add optional thin shoulder pads to the shoulders for a more pronounced look.

So what is a PDF pattern?
A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper. Alternatively you can choose to have the copyshop files printed on large A0 paper, and posted to you at home. If you’re using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
