This is an Indie Pattern Designer Event workshop. Over ten and half hours you will make styleARC's Alegra Jacket. This coat is collarless, features the popular cocoon shape and has two different length variations.

styleARC creates this shape with darts on the hemline, plus darts over the shoulder line and tucks in the back.

The longer style variation includes pockets and a zip front!


The shorter jacket length is an easier option without the zip and a great choice for students who have just finished the Sewing Basics. The coat length variation is a medium level pattern with a zip and a little more sewing - ideal for tackling with a teacher's support.

The Alegra features: raglan sleeves, tucks/pleats, shoulder and hem darts, facings and either a hook and eye closure on the short variation or a zip on the longer variation.

Make it from a cosy wool, or chic linen, or a stable ponte.  

  Sew the wardrobe look  

After making styleArc's Alegra Jacket we will next make the Harmony Top, and finally the Agatha Skirt for the perfect styleARC wardrobe!
