In thee shop: A New Style of Upcycled Denim Patchwork Jean Jacket


I wanted to try and make a different type of jacket from the last ones I made. The kimono open cardigan styles I made earlier this year. So I found this Butterick pattern for a patchwork jacket and tried it out. 

The patchwork as shown in their photos does not actually have a pattern. Rather you're supposed to do that yourself and then cut it out as if it were whole fabric. I actually thought the patchwork would be done for you and was looking forward to trying it out. It ended up being fine though since I mainly just wanted the sizing reference and could do my own patchwork. I added a poly lining to the front and back (not in the sleeves). As well as inner pockets that should be able to fit your phone if you need. I also added a snap closure at the neckline instead of the pattern suggested button and loop.

You can check out the jacket for complete details here in the shop. I've labeled it size Medium/Large because it is a bit of an oversized style. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have.
