Robe Jacket Pattern

Robe Jacket

Created for Peppermint Mag by Alison Pollard and Charlotte Mackay of Brisbane-based sewing pattern and sustainable fashion brand Common Stitch, this versatile robe jacket features wide sleeves, a relaxed silhouette and a fabric belt.

It’s the perfect trans-seasonal, multipurpose pattern – try pairing it with jeans and a tee, layering it over your swimsuit while at the beach, or adding length to create a long duster jacket in a heavier fabric for those cooler days.

This version was made in “Fresh” Hanky linen.

DIY Shawl Collar Cardigan Free Pattern

DIY Shawl Collar Cardigan

Download this free pattern to make a DIY shawl collar cardigan with a front hem which sweeps up from the center. This pattern is really quite simple to draft. It’s just rectangles! If the bottom hem didn’t sweep up, it would be even simpler.

If you would like to keep things REALLY easy and are new to making your own patterns, you can always omit the curved hem and just make it square. But of course, it’s the little details that take a pattern from boring to fashionable.

Go to the easy tutorial and pattern here.

Hooded Wrap Coat Free Pattern

Hooded Wrap Coat Pattern

Hooded coat pattern

By Weekend Designer

The appeal of the flat-felled seam is that it makes the joint stronger by running two lines of stitches through each piece of fabric, while simultaneously encapsulating the raw edges and preventing them from unravelling. This is the special seam that designers use to create your denim jeans.

What’s more, it’s pretty simple once you get the concept. You can make it even easier by running an iron over the seam after you make each fold. Set it to a low heat so that you don’t scorch your fabric and try making a hooded wrap coat like this one from Mara Hoffman. Use a cozy double-sided winter coating and skip the lining.

Download the pattern and instructions here.

Zip Up Hoodie Pattern

Zip Up Hoodie Pattern

This zip up hoodie pattern is slightly fitted but is not supposed to be tight, so please pay attention to the finished garment measurements. Hoodies are super popular these days. They are very functional and can be worn not only as work-out wear but also on any trip to the store or just around the house.

It is meant to be worn with a tank top and sweatpants. By far the best fabric that you can use if you live in a cold place is a 12.4-ounce fleece, but do not limit yourself to that option alone. There are many other options.
