The first pattern to be released as part of the 2017 Fall/Winter collection is the Softshell Jacket. This jacket pattern produces ready to wear looking results with 3 welt pockets, a hood with grommets and shock cord, elastic at the wrists and a yoke with inserted trim.
If you would like a simpler sew, many of these details can be left off, but the end result is just as nice!
This pattern was drafted to be sewn out of softshell fleece, but can also be sewn out of polar fleece, sweatshirting, or a stretch woven. One tester even sewed hers out of PUL basted to a layer of fleece! For more tester versions, be sure to check out the pattern listing.
The pattern release is sponsored by Frollein S. This shop not only stocks several adorable softshell prints, but also many other premium fabrics: double gauze, euro style knits, ribbing, flannel, corduroy, and more!
Thanks to Frollein S., one lucky reader will win a $35 gift certificate to buy fabric! To enter, simply leave me a comment telling me which other Gracious Threads pattern you would pair with the Softshell Jacket for a perfect back to school outfit!
