The Monarch Jacket sewing pattern is a boxy jacket designed for thick stable knits like ponte and scuba. This slightly cropped cardigan-style jacket has wrist-length raglan sleeves and a bomber-inspired collar.
Optional snaps provide closure at the center front. The Monarch Jacket has several inches of positive ease through the bodice and is fitted through the lower sleeve.
The D-cup version of this pattern features bust darts, while the B-cup version does not.
This is a sewing pattern intended to be used by the home sewist, not a finished garment.
Digital pattern is offered in sizes 0 to 18 (B-cup) and 12 to 30 (D-cup). Each size range is a separate product.
Includes tiled print-at-home file (26 pages for the B-cup size range and 32 pages for the D-cup size range).
Also includes an A0 copy shop file (two sheets each for both the B-cup size range and the D-cup size range) and US copy shop files (36" by 64" for the B-cup size range and 36" x 54" for the D-cup size range.
3/8" seam allowances included.
