The Coco Jacket sewing pattern is designed for intermediate dressmakers. Although it’s not too difficult in terms of construction, we recommend you have a few other dressmaking projects under your belt before tackling Coco, but if you’ve never made a jacket before, it’s a great pattern to start with.
For the Coco Jacket we recommend a medium to heavyweight wool fabric, such as tweed, boucle, boiled wool or melton. For a lighter jacket, you could also try a jacquard, linen or viscose linen blend. If you are a beginner we recommend avoiding fabrics with a very loose weave (such as boucle) as these fray easily and can make your sewing more tricky.
The Coco Jacket is fully-lined, so you will also need lining fabric. We recommend using something with a silky finish so you can get the jacket on and off easily, such as satin, acetate, or even silk charmeuse for all-out luxury.
The Coco Jacket sewing pattern is available in sizes 8-20. See the size chart for details on measurements and fabric requirements.
Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.

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.
