  1. Crystal Hansen

    This jacket pattern was wonderful to use. The fit was excellent and required only minimal alterations to fit. Very satisfied.

    I too love this jacket but have to fiddle it to my body shape because I wear it without a pair of bodies in hot weather. My advice is to Make a Muslin. Like every other sewing pattern ever made by anyone your body is unique. And the way you want something to fit may not be the way it was worn by the people in the portraits nor anyone else. And what you wear under it does affect it. I have two and a third in the works.

  3. Sarah O’Connor

    I love this jacket pattern. I had to modify it a little to fit my particular proportions (I’m somewhat longer waisted than many people), but once I did, this pattern is all I use for my late 16th/early 17th century portrayals. These jackets are my favorite pieces of historical clothing – they go together quickly and make for an excellent mix-and-match wardrobe.

  4. Harlie Des Roches

    I love this pattern. Easy to use and I always get compliments when I wear the jacket that I’ve made from it.
