FALDA JACKET • Pattern
By PATTERN FANTASTIQUE, Falda Jacket is a paper sewing pattern.
Garment Details: The Falda Jacket was developed using a combination of draping and flat paper pattern making. Fabric carved into bold clean shapes. A nod to the classic Chanel tweed, the sensibility of a bomber jacket and the humour and volume of a victorian era sleeve.
Sizing: This is a multi-sized pattern in Australian sizes of 6 -16. Sizing chart can be found here.
