Pattern Favourites: Short Jackets

Spring is around the corner and we can’t wait! One of the must-sew garments on our list this year is a short jacket. The kind of jacket that is not too warm, not too cold, and goes with most of your outfits. A wardrobe staple that you could wear from the beginning of spring all the way through to autumn.

We have rounded up some of our favourites and we hope you like them too. Only one problem left… They’re all pretty amazing, which one shall we make first?
