When Judy from Pattern for Pirates asked me to test her latest pattern, the Lumberjack Shirt, I knew right away I needed to say yes. While the pattern is named after lumberjacks, we wear this type of coat all the time on the farm, and I thought it would be fun for my little ones to be dressed like their daddy.
For both of the jackets I sewed up, I did the fully lined, hooded version. For my son, I used flannel for the outside, interlock for the lining, and a berber fleece for the hood.
My original plan was the fully line the jacket with black poly fleece, but it turned out to be a bit too bulky for such a little guy, especially since the flannel I used was a thick one.
After loving the results of the first one I sewed up, I traced the pattern in size 6 for my oldest daughter.
For her jacket, I used a quilting cotton outer and lined it completely with poly fleece. For a larger size, the fleece isn’t too bulky.
Both jackets turned out very stylish and warm. The will be perfect for playing in the yard and helping daddy in the barn!
