THE FLYNN JACKET • Pattern
By IN THE FOLDS, The Flynn Jacket is a paper sewing pattern.
Garment Details: The Flynn jacket is a loose-fitting jacket designed for woven fabrics. With two different styles, it is the perfect layering piece for autumn and winter.
The Flynn jacket features a kimono-style collar, a highlow hem and in-seam pockets. All seams are finished with bias binding, for a beautiful and high-end finish.
The Flynn jacket can be worn open or closed discreetly with a hook and eye.
VIEW A The Flynn jacket has a dropped shoulder and sleeve with a hem facing. It also features an inverted box-pleat in the back.
The sleeves on View A are designed to be worn either straight or folded back, for a more casual look.
VIEW B The Flynn jacket is sleeveless and features armhole facings and a flat back piece (no pleat). It has been designed to be worn over long sleeve tops and dresses.
View B has a closer fit to View A, due to its sleeveless design and flat back piece.
Fabric Suggestions: The Flynn jacket is compatible with bottom-weight fabrics such as: denim, cottons like canvas, duckcloth and drill, and heavyweight linens.
