Rebecca Page Kingston Jacket
A denim jacket is a wardrobe staple almost no matter who you are. I have been meaning to try the Rebecca Page Kingston pattern for such a long time, and I finally got around to it. This one was part of a capsule wardrobe that I am working on for the spring of 2022 (more to come on that later on). I decided to sew up their regular Kingston pattern with the Add-On option to add welt pockets and knit sleeves and a hood. This pattern was great to sew up. I had this mid to heavy-weight denim (don't remember where it was from) in my stash. It has a silver sheen to it, which is super-fun! And I ordered some Cotton French Terry from Boho Fabrics that I absolutely love (it's available in a variety of colors!) I decided to use metal utility snaps leftover from a project that my husband worked on earlier in the year. They were super-easy to attach with my Kam Snap Press.
I absolutely love this make. I will wear it all year long with all the things. Here are a few more pictures.
Just so you know, this pattern is available in Men's, Women's, and Kids' sizing, plus sizing for an 18-inch doll. My jacket also has an interior pocket for my phone (also part of the add-on) that is not pictured, but sooo useful! The regular pattern has a traditional jacket collar and three or four different woven sleeve options. It also has great instructions for flat felled seams.
Here are some more links. They are all on sale for the release of extended "curvy" sizing for this pattern (RP now has women's sizes 1-10 and 6C-15C). For reference, my jacket is a size 3 chest graded to 4 waist and hips. Were I to make it again, I probably would just make a straight size 4. There is more ease built into the waist and hips than the chest:
I am loving this pattern so much! Another couple pictures before I let you go.
