Shacket free sewing pattern
You can’t avoid the Shacket trend this Fall!
A Shacket is a perfect mix of shirt and jacket. It is cut like a classic men’s shirt, and the warm coat fabrics make it an ideal companion when the temperatures are slowly falling.
With our Shacket Freebook, nothing stands in the way of your DIY jacket of the season!
Sewing a Shacket out of the following recommended fabrics would be fabulous:
Checked coat fabrics, boucle, broad cord or cord with fur on the side, but also teddy or jeans would be a nice alternative.
Are you a fabric dealer? You can find a large selection of trendy coat fabrics on our online shop.
